Liam Moore: Brentford sign Leicester City defender on loan

Moore has made a total of 66 appearances for Leicester City

Championship side Brentford have signed Leicester City centre-back Liam Moore on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has made 14 appearances for the Foxes this season but has only featured twice in 2015, with both of those outings coming in the FA Cup.

The England Under-21 international had a loan spell with the Bees in 2013, playing seven times.

"Liam is a very talented young defender," Brentford boss Mark Warburton told the club website.

"We were very aware that we were exposed to injury and lack of cover in the central defensive position.

"Liam will be a welcome addition and adds real competition for places as we enter the final stretch of what has been a good season so far."

Promotion hopefuls Brentford are just outside the Championship play-off spots, one point adrift of sixth-placed Watford.
