INTER MILAN have completed a loan swoop for Chelsea outcast Victor Moses.

The wing-back has been reunited with former boss Antonio Conte after playing a key role during Chelsea’s Premier League title win in 2017.

Versatile right-sider Moses, 29, had spent the last year on loan at Turkish side Fenerbahce.

But Chelsea decided to recall him when Conte came calling earlier this month.

And Moses will now be playing under the Italian tactician at the San Siro until the end of the season.

The move was inevitable after Romelu Lukaku, who ditched Manchester United for Inter last summer, earlier uploaded a picture of Moses enjoying dinner with his new Inter teammates.

Alexis Sanchez was also snapped up from Old Trafford six months ago.

And Conte recently completed a shock swoop for United captain Ashley Young.

Moses will now be looking to help Inter end Juve’s Serie A domination by lining up as the right wing-back in Conte’s five-man defence.

Inter trail Maurizio Sarri’s men by four points after drawing four of their last six league matches.

And Conte is sure to be hoping the extra bodies acquired in January help thrust Inter back to the top of the table.

Moses could soon be joined by former Chelsea pal Olivier Giroud, although reports in Italy claim Inter are instead closing in on Napoli’s Fernando Llorente, with Matteo Politano heading in the opposite direction.

Conte is also keen on a new central midfielder and had been targeting Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal.

But with Quique Setien taking charge of the Spanish side, it’s reckoned Conte is now set to try his luck with Napoli ace Allan, who is also being linked with Juve.

As for Moses, he could go straight into the starting XI for Sunday’s home game against Cagliari.

But Chelsea fans may be scratching their heads over the deal, with Frank Lampard’s men in desperate need of reinforcements and Cesar Azpilicueta looking particularly poor as an attacking right-back.

Moses joined the Blues in 2013 from Wigan in 2012 and has scored 18 goals in 128 matches.

However, most of his time has been spent out on loan, with Moses featuring for sides including Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham over the last seven years.

As well as winning the 2017 Premier League title, Moses also lifted the 2018 FA Cup and the 2013 Europa League.
