Birmingham City have offered a trial to young Brentford striker Montell Moore, according to Get West London.

The 20 year old is a product of Brentford’s academy and made his Brentford debut in a League Cup 1st Round tie against Dagenham & Redbridge back in August 2014.

The match ended 6-6 after extra time with The Bees winning the tie on penalty kicks. Moore scored his first professional goal in the match and also contributed 2 assists.

Moore is a pacey winger who spent the second half of last season on loan at Danish Superliga side Midtjylland after falling out of favour in West London and played in the Danish club’s Under 19 and reserve sides.

The youngster has been at Brentford since 7 years of age but is looking for a future away from Griffin Park after falling foul of the law after handling stolen goods, an incident which has tarnished the players reputation at the club.

Moore has joined Birmingham City on trial and featured for The Blues’ Under 21s side in a fixture against Bolton Wanderers on Monday afternoon.

The winger is said to have impressed in the match particularly with a neat range of passing before being substituted. City Manager Gary Rowett is expected to take a further look at Moore in another Under 21 or reserve team fixture.

Birmingham City are looking for another skilful wide player after Demarai Gray joined Leicester City.
