English Premiership club Chelsea have announced their confirmed shirt numbers for the 2016/2017 season following the closure of the transfer window.

Nigerian winger Victor Moses will play in the number 15 jersey all season long after it was confirmed as his new shirt number for the season.

Moses wore jersey number 13 when he first arrived at Chelsea but while on loan to Liverpool, the number was taken by goalkepper Thibaut Courtois.

His other jersey number before his loan spell was jersey number 20, but upon his return from West Ham, he starred in jersey number 15 during Chelsea’s pre season game before the start of the season.

He retained it and played in it in the games he has played this season, and henceforth following the official unveiling of squad numbers, he will maintain the number for the rest of the season.

Meanwhile captain of the Super Eagles Mikel John Obi retained his shirt number 12, in what will be his 11th season at Stamford bridge.
