Leeds target Moore open to loan move

Moore started the season as first choice for Leicester alongside Wes Morgan but went on to join Brentford in February after the arrival of Robert Huth and return to fitness of Matthew Upson blocked his path to the team.

He wants talks with Foxes boss Nigel Pearson over his plans for next season but would be willing to drop down a division again to get regular games.

“My aim, since the season finished, has been to focus 100 per cent on these Euros,” he said. “I really want to play my part.

“Then I will assess the situation. It will be something I speak to the management at Leicester about – what is best for me.

“I am a player who needs to be playing. I know it sounds silly, but for me to get to the point I want to be in my career it has to be playing regularly just to get that experience.

“Centre-halves need to be nurtured. You have to understand the game from every angle, not just your position. That is only going to come with games.

“I will have to have the conversation with Leicester about what kind of game-time I will be getting next season, and if it is not as much as I feel I need and they agree, then it might be a loan move elsewhere.

“The Championship is a really good standard and it is something that is in the back of my mind.

“When I was in the team at the start of last season it was great, but when you are out of the team coming back in can be difficult, especially as a young player.

“You can only learn so much on the training pitch.

“I am eager to learn so if that means more game-time in the Championship, then so be it.”
