Victor Moses may be on his third successive season out on loan from Chelsea, but the club have not given up on him.
Shortly before he agreed to join West Ham for the season on transfer deadline day, Chelsea agree for the Nigerian international to a sign four-year deal, announcing confirmation via their official website.
It does not sound like purely an investment to net a higher fee for him down the line either, with the club maintaining belief he can become an effective player for the club.
Technical director Michael Emenalo has been quoted by The Express, citing Moses as in defence of the club's loan policy, with more than 30 players farmed out to teams across Europe.
He said: "Sometimes there are players whose development is not finished, just like Victor (Moses), who maybe needs to play more football to get to the level we think he can get to, because he is very, very talented."
Moses had a season on loan at Liverpool where he failed to kick on, while last season at Stoke City was more productive.

Moses though needs game time, having failed to reach 20 games in his last two campaigns. Emenalo's comments and his new contract should act as inspiration to do well for the Hammers.
It would be a success story for the winger if he can earn a spot back in Chelsea's first team, but needs to have a big season at West Ham this time around.
The former Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic man has Premier League experience on his side, and still only 24-years-old, he still has the time to kick on and reach his potential.
