Victor Moses

According to reports, Burnley have been denied the opportunity to recruit Victor Moses from Spartak Moscow until the end of the season due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Nigerian international, who won the Premier League with Chelsea under Antonio Conte in 2016/17, had been identified as a short-term solution in the Clarets’ battle to avoid relegation.

FIFA has previously permitted mid-season transfers for players based in Russia and Ukraine as a result of Vladimir Putin’s relentless pushes.

While the Russian Premier League has continued, a large number of international players and their families have departed the country for safety reasons.

This includes the whole foreign personnel at Krasnodar, following the departure of ex-Norwich manager Daniel Farke just weeks after signing his deal.

Sheffield United became the first British team to seize the opportunity, signing Rubin Kazan captain Filip Uremovic on a temporary basis until the conclusion of the season.

According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League has now blocked Burnley‘s effort to sign Moses from Spartak Moscow.

The Clarets have previously been notified of the decision, as Sean Dyche sought to bolster his squad with further experience and talent.

Moses has extensive experience playing in England, having represented Crystal Palace, Wigan Athletic, Chelsea, Liverpool, Stoke City, and West Ham United.

Moses made his loan term with Spartak permanent last summer following a successful loan spell in Russia.
