Leeds linked Liam Moore admits 'the Championship appeals to me'

The Leicester City defender is adamant that he wants to be playing football, which could be

Leeds United linked Liam Moore has revealed that he is very much willing to step down to the Championship in order to secure game time, in quotes appearing in the Express.

The 22-year-old wasn't involved in the second half of Leicester's Premier League season, going on to take in a loan spell at Brentford just to get some minutes.

Seeing how well the Foxes performed during that period, not to mention the fact that they are also said to be in the running for West Brom centre back Gareth McAuley, it is understandable that Moore is anxious about appearances next season.

Though he is only focused on the upcoming European Under-21 Championships right now, he admitted he will be discussing his future with Leicester before the start of the season.

"It will be something I speak to the management at Leicester about – what is best for me," Moore is quoted as saying.

"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.

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

"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."

Leeds are purposefully pursuing their targets this summer, and the signing of someone as promising as Moore, even on loan, would be a big statement for the Whites.
