London: Victor Moses joined Stoke City on a season-long loan from Chelsea on Saturday, the Premier League club said.

The 23-year-old former Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic player, who was on loan at Liverpool last season, is Stoke`s sixth new recruit of the summer.

"We are delighted to have secured the services of such an exciting young talent in Victor," Stoke`s chief executive Tony Scholes said on the club`s website.

"He will certainly add to our attacking options and from talking to him it`s obvious that he`s really excited about the prospect of making an impact."

Moses, a Nigeria international, will play no part in Stoke`s season opener against Aston Villa later on Saturday.

Stoke have been busy in the transfer window as they try and build their ninth-placed finish last season.

Bojan, Mame Diouf, Phil Bardsley, Steve Sidwell and Dionantan Teixeira were all in line to make their debuts against Villa at the Brittania Stadium.
