Brentford to loan out starlet Montell Moore

Brentford Griffin Park

HITC Sport understands Brentford winger Montell Moore is a loan target for a number of clubs.

Brentford winger Montell Moore is at the centre of a loan battle between a number of Football League sides vying for his signature, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Moore is highly-regarded at Brentford after coming through the club's academy system from the age of seven.

The 19-year-old made his senior debut for the club in last season's Capital One Cup clash with Dagenham & Redbridge, marking his bow with a goal.

The skilful attacker spent the second half of last season out on loan at Danish club FC Midtjylland to gain some valuable first-team experience.

Moore has been in superb form for Brentford's Under-21s this season, with three goals in five games, including a brace last week.

Moore's performances have alerted a number of Football League clubs, who are hoping to sign the player on a temporary basis.

Brentford are open to the idea of sending Moore out on loan so that he can get regular first-team action under his belt, enabling him to return ready to fight for a first-team spot at Griffin Park.
