Bolton Wanderers are the latest team chasing the loan signing of Leicester City and England Under-21 defender Liam Moore, according to reports.

Championship rivals Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers, Brentford and Fulham have all been linked with a move for the centre-back, and the side from West Yorkshire remain favourites to secure his signature.

Bolton are now hopeful that they can swoop in and take Moore on loan despite interest from elsewhere. Leicester are willing to allow the youngster to leave on loan as he has slipped down the pecking order, with Wes Morgan, Robert Huth and Marcin Wasilewski all being preferred options for the Foxes in the Premier League.

Moore has hinted that he will look for a move to the Championship in order to secure regular first-team football, and this has certainly created much interest amongst sides in England’s second tier.
