Liam Moore's comments suggests his future lies at Leicester, rather than a Leeds loan

Leeds United-linked Liam Moore has said that he is excited to work with defensive duo Christian Fuchs and Robert Huth for the upcoming season.

Liam Moore told Leicester City’s official club website that he is excited to play with the likes of Christian Fuchs and Robert Huth next season - effectively pouring cold water on the rumours that he could join Leeds United on loan.

Last month, the Yorkshire Evening Post linked the England under-21 defender with a move to Elland Road, along with a number of other Championship clubs, after he had seemingly fell down the pecking order at the East Midlands club.

Nevertheless, in a recent interview with the Foxes official site, the 22-year-old seemed as positive as ever about his chances of first-team football and said that he was excited about working with the likes of Huth and Fuchs.

‘’They [Fuchs and Huth] are experienced players,’’ said Moore. ‘’Huth has a load of experience at the top.

‘’There are little points you can pick up from players like that. I can only learn from players with such quality and experience every day in training.’’

On last season, Moore enthused his delight at not suffering relegation to the Championship with Leicester, indicating that he may not be willing to step down a division on a permanent basis just yet. 

Should Leicester consider selling or loaning Moore to Leeds?

Although Moore’s first-team chances look bleak at the moment, he is a player with a huge amount of potential and could easily force himself back into the side with a good pre-season.

A permanent move to a Championship club is unlikely to be high on Moore’s wishlist and at 22, with two years left on his current deal, he has no need to rush his future.

The Foxes will be extremely strong defensively heading into next season, but allowing the Loughborough-born defender to leave could be a decision they later regret, although a loan could still be the best of both worlds.

He is a player with a bright future and working with players like Huth and Fuchs should help him develop further.
