Newcastle are reported to be interested in 20-year-old Leicester City defender Liam Moore, who is a regular in the Leicester City side this season, and both club and player are doing very well.
Liam Moore – 20 year old Leicester City defender
Liam is a highly-rated young player and has been playing for Leicester, who are top of the Championship and are four points clear of Burnley after 25 games played.
He can play either at center-back or right back and the 6’1″ tall player has played three times for the England U17 side and once for the England U21 side.
Liam was born in Loughborough and he made his Leicester City debut in August 2011 in a 2–1 defeat away to Aldershot, when he was only 18 years old.
He has since played 44 times for Leicester and 25 times this season with one goal, and the lad has had previous loan spells at Bradford City and Bradford.
The England U21 defender was watched by a number of Premier League clubs including Newcastle last Friday, when he was excellent in the home game against Derby County which Leicester won 4-1.
Other Premier League clubs said to be interested in the defender include Aston Villa, Swansea and West Brom and it would be good if Newcastle can recruit a few more English players to the Tyneside club.
But Leicester have a great chance of being promoted this season under former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson, and they will probably be in no hurry to sell one of their best young players.
