Blues confirm on Moses transfer, but 'Did we really need him?'

The Blues finally get their man at the fifth attempt as they finally meet the valuation Dave Whelan had in mind for his winger and Roberto Di Matteo will sit down with him soon

Wigan Athletic have accepted a bid for Victor Moses, 21, from Chelsea after finally meeting the valuation set by the club.

The midfielder was on the receiving end of four unsuccessful bids by Roberto Di Matteo but Dave Whelan has finally agreed to sell the player on the fifth attempt.

The club announced on their website that they had given Chelsea permission to speak to Moses as the move looks set to go through sometime this week.

The 21-year-old played the full 90 minutes against his potential new club last weekend but failed to get on the score sheet as Di Matteo's men were 2-0 victors.

His versatility would prove key to Chelsea this season as he can either play out wide or as a central striker and would be a useful tool as they look to chase reigning champions Manchester City all the way in the Premier League.

Moses has played for England Under 16, 17, 19 and 21s but has since pledged his allegiance to his country of birth Nigeria and is now a member of their senior line-up.

His stand-out moment at international level saw him pick up the Golden Boot for England Under 17s in their World Cup.

At the end of the day.. the real question is that considering the amount of quality we already have, did we really need him?
