Victor Moses sealed a complete deal to Spartak Moscow from Chelsea in 2021 after being loaned to 5 different clubs. He has since then made 46 appearances for the Russian giants and has netted 6 times with 8 assists to his tally. Only in Chelsea, Wigan, and Crystal Palace has he made more appearances than Spartak Moscow.
Moses seeks to join relegated threatened Burnley from Spartan Moscow as a plan to keep him with the English club until the end of the season, but his wish has been dealt a blow due to EPL’s refusal to take players from both affected Nations in the war.
Due to concerns over the sporting integrity of the competition, the Premier League rules will go against signing players for such a short time frame. German Bundesliga And French ligue1 also are refusing players to join for a short spell from both affected nations, only La Liga is accepting players.
Spartan Moscow is already disqualified from the Europa League competition in the round of sixteen. FIFA also has indefinitely suspended Russia from participating in the World Cup.
On the 1st of March, FIFA and UEFA releases a joint statement disbanding the Russian National team and its clubs from every competition.
“Following the initial decisions adopted by the FIFA Council and the UEFA Executive Committee, which envisaged the adoption of additional measures, FIFA and UEFA have today decided together that all Russian teams, whether national representative teams or club teams, shall be suspended from participation in both FIFA and UEFA competitions until further notice.
“These decisions were adopted today by the Bureau of the FIFA Council and the Executive Committee of UEFA, respectively, the highest decision-making bodies of both institutions on such urgent matters.
“Football is fully united here and in full solidarity with all the people affected in Ukraine. Both presidents hope that the situation in Ukraine will improve significantly and rapidly so that football can again be a vector for unity and peace among people.”
