Italian's delight at Moses move
Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is excited at the prospect of landing Victor Moses as a deal to sign him from Wigan nears completion.
Di Matteo is convinced the 21-year-old can be a key player for the club in the future after finally having a £9m bid accepted by the Latics for Nigerian forward, after four previous attempts failed.
The Italian has nothing but praise for Wigan and their manager Roberto Martinez for the way they have developed Moses' talent during his two year stay at the DW Stadium, and he is now relishing the chance to see him come on even further with the Blues.
Wigan signed the winger from Crystal Palace on deadline day in January 2010 for £2.5m, and have watched him blossom from raw potential to a genuine top class player under the guidance of Martinez's leadership.
He said: "The clubs have agreed terms now. The player will have a medical. Subject to that he might become a Chelsea player.
"Roberto Martinez has done a wonderful job with this player since signing him. He's really developed him.
"He had a very good season last year and hopefully we can progress his development.
"He can play on either wing and will give the team width. He has good dribbling ability, has pace and is powerful.
"We've tried very hard to get this player. We like him very much. He's young and hopefully he'll be the future of the club."
