David Gold responds when asked if West Ham will sign Victor Moses permanently

Upton Park

The West Ham United supremo has admitted there is the possibility of signing the Chelsea player for the long term.

West Ham United joint chairman David Gold has taken to Twitter to respond to a question about the Hammers’ recent loan signing Victor Moses.

The 24-year-old Nigeria international became one of four deadline day arrivals for West Ham last week, joining Nikica Jelavic, Michail Antonio and Alex Song as manager Slaven Bilic considerably strengthened his squad with time ticking down.

Moses is a Chelsea player but he has only played 44 matches for the Blues, spending the vast majority of the last few years out on loan at the likes of Liverpool and Stoke City.

Now West Ham join that list and this weekend Gold was asked if the club could ultimately sign Moses on a permanent deal.

“Anything is possible,” Gold replied, and if Song lives up to his potential during his initial spell at Upton Park it would be a brilliant move to sign him up for the long term.

That is an issue for another day, and for now Bilic and Gold will simply be hoping Moses hits the ground running and helps the Hammers maintain their impressive – if somewhat erratic – start to the new season.

Wins over Arsenal and Liverpool have showed what this West Ham side can do and with four new players in their ranks, the sky could be the limit.
