Moses: Sturridge helped influence Liverpool move

The Chelsea youngster says that his former Blues teammate helped convince him to make the switch to Anfield in a season-long loan, which was finalized on deadline day.
Chelsea winger Victor Moses said that Daniel Sturridge helped to persuade him to join Liverpool on loan.

The 22-year-old Moses, who made just 12 starts for the London club in the Premier League last season, completed his switch to Anfield on deadline day, with Mamadou Sakoh and Tiago Ilori also arriving at the club. But the Nigeria international confirmed that former teammate Sturridge helped him to make his mind up, though he did not need much convincing.

"I spoke to Studge and he wanted me to come here. He said I'd love it here, but he didn't need to say much," Moses told Liverpool's offiical website. "The next morning, I had a word with my agent and told him it could be the right move for me.

"It's a massive club with great history. The club is doing well, so I wanted to come here and enjoy my football.

"I just want to come here, help my teammates however I can to try and get into the top four, and get as many games as I can at the same time."

Moses will now link up with his country ahead of their crucial World Cup qualifier against Malawi on Saturday before possibly making his Liverpool bow against Swansea City on Sept. 16.
