The Nigeria international claims other clubs were interested in taking him on loan from Chelsea but the chance to work with the Welshman was too enticing to refuse

Chelsea exile Victor Moses has revealed that Mark Hughes was behind his decision to join Stoke City on loan after claiming he had a "few options" to choose from.

Moses, who spent last season on loan at Liverpool, was deemed surplus to first-team requirements at Stamford Bridge and eventually opted to move to the Britannia Stadium.

The 23-year-old insists he could have gone elsewhere, but claims the opportunity to work under Hughes was too good to turn down.

"I had a few options to go to other clubs, but when I heard about Stoke I knew that they had a good manager and I thought it would be good to come here and work under him," Moses told the Stoke Sentinel.

"He's a great manager, and was a great footballer too, and for me to play under him will be a great achievement.

"I just want to give 110 per cent to the club and hopefully we will achieve what the club are looking to do this season."

Moses scored just two goals in 22 appearances for Liverpool last term and is hoping for a more influential role in a Stoke team looking to build on their highest Premier League finish of ninth in 2013-14.

He could make his Potters debut at Hull City on Sunday, with the club looking to bounce back from a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa in their top-flight opener last Saturday.
