Liam Moore Joins Brentford On Loan
The 22-year-old Academy graduate joins the Bees until the end of the 2014/15 season, though he can be recalled at any point after the first 28 days.
Liam’s spell at Griffin Park will be the second of his career, having played seven times for the west London outfit during a one-month loan two years ago.
Moore enjoyed a fine season under Nigel Pearson in 2013/14, playing a key role in Leicester’s charge to the Championship title. After making his Premier League debut against Everton last August, he has gone on to gain some vital top-flight experience this term.
Quick, athletic and powerful, Moore has progressed impressively since graduating from City’s Academy, and signed a new three-year contract with the Club last summer.
The England Under-21 international joins a Brentford side flying high after promotion from League 1 last season, and they currently find themselves just one point adrift of the Championship play-off places with 13 games remaining.
Moore returned from a spell with Brentford in 2013 to re-join City’s successful push for a play-off place and that, combined with his 33 Championship appearances in 2013/14, will make him a useful addition to Mark Warburton’s squad.
The Barrow-born defender’s first professional appearance came in League 2 during a promising loan spell with Bradford City, before he broke into the City first team at the start of the 2012/13 campaign.
He featured in the Foxes’ final day victory over Nottingham Forest that season and progressed rapidly to secure the Football League Young Player of the Month award for September 2013 – the month in which he scored his first professional goal against Wigan Athletic.
