The arrival of former Super Eagles winger, Victor Moses from Chelsea of England on loan at Fernebahce of Turkey, has accounted for the exit of Algeria’s Yacine Benzia from The Yellow Canaries.
Sports247.ng learnt that Moses comes highly recommended, with a hefty pay day in an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea, which has left Fernebahce opting to let go of Benzia to make way for the new arrival.
Moses has already justified his signing by scoring in only his second game with the Istanbul-based side, even after going on as a substitute in both, such that Ferne will feel justified to create space for him.
Where Moses is gaining, with props and chants rolling in his favour, reverse is the case for Benzia, who Fenerbache have already omitted from their squad for the second half of the Turkish Super Lig season.
The 24-year-old Benzia, who is a former France youth international, is on a season-long loan in Turkey from Lille.
He played 13 Super Lig games in the first half the season and his most recent appearance was in the club’s 2-0 win over visiting Goztepe on 1 February.
Amazingly, though, while he is not on Fenerbahce’s list for the league he keeps his place alongside Moses in their UEFA Europa League squad.
