Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has stated Victor Moses is not part of his first-team plans for the 2020-21 season.
The former Super Eagles star returned to Chelsea this month after his brief loan stint at Inter Milan and he is yet to make a match-day squad since the start of the campaign.
Ahead of Tuesday’s League Cup fixture against Tottenham Hotspur, Lampard confirmed the 29-year-old is not training with the first-team.
“At the moment Victor isn’t in that position with us. We have a bubble at the training ground with the first-team squad, which Victor hasn’t been part of,” Lampard said in a press conference.
Monday’s update fuels uncertainty around Moses’ future at Stamford Bridge with his contract expected to run out in June 2021.
Lampard played with the ex-Nigeria international during his active career at Stamford Bridge.
“I know Victor well and we will see how that develops over the next week,” he added.
After Antonio Conte’s departure at the helm, Moses struggled for regular first-team action at Chelsea
and was released to join Fenerbahce on an 18-month loan deal in January 2019.
