West Bromwich Albion still are trying to sign Sheffield United goalkeeper Simon Moore, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter. 

The Baggies are also looking to sign Huddersfield Town defender Michael Hefele, as reported by The72 earlier today.

Their new manager, Darren Moore, has signed two players so far in this transfer window. He has signed highly-rated goalkeeper Sam Johnstone from Manchester United and has today brought in defender Kyle Bartley from Championship rivals Swansea City.

Moore is now looking to further bolster his ranks and prepare a squad capable of mounting a promotion push back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Sheffield United’s Simon Moore is a target for West Brom as they seek to provide some competition/back-up to Sam Johnstone. The Baggies released Boaz Myhill at the end of last season, and he is now in talks with Bolton Wanderers. They also sold their number one from the last campaign, Ben Foster, to top flight side Watford.

Therefore, a move for Simon Moore makes sense as it provides more depth to the goalkeeping position. He has also got plenty of Championship experience under his belt from his spells at Brentford, Cardiff City and Sheffield United.

He started his career at Southampton before having to work his way up the football pyramid from non-league after spells at Brading Town and Farnborough. Moore was snapped up by Brentford in 2009 and has established himself in the Football League. He could now earn himself a move to West Brom.
