Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler coy on Liam Moore interest, denies offers made for Giuseppe Bellusci

Uwe Rosler

The Leeds United boss was reported to be keen on signing the Leicester City defender on loan.

Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler has refused to be drawn on the potential signing of Liam Moore on loan from Leicester City, although admitted watching the player in action against Bury in the League Cup earlier in the week.

Leicester won the game 4-1 and Rosler was in attendance. However, in his press conference earlier today he did not want to be drawn on specific names. As reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post he stated:

"I watched the (Leicester) game at Bury and there were some very good players there."

The young England under-21 international defender is not currently a regular at the King Power Stadium and has previously worked under Rosler, during a loan spell at Brentford.

The news came amid reports Leeds are battling to keep hold of one of their central defenders. Giuseppe Bellusci is wanted by both Atalanta and Bologna in his Italian homeland, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

However, in the same press conference today, Rosler confirmed that no offers were currently on the table for Bellusci – indicating Moore would not be signed as a replacement for the Italian defender.

Leeds currently have Sol Bamba as their number one centre-back choice but the position of Bellusci, or indeed Liam Cooper next to him, could easily be in doubt.
