Bristol City could launch a late transfer bid for Leicester City defender Liam Moore according to the Bristol Post.
The Robins’ Championship rivals Reading are already understood to have made an offer for the player but are yet to receive the green light from Leicester City to discuss terms with the defender and Bristol City could step in to hijack any potential deal.
Reading are believed to have submitted an offer of around £1 million for Moore but Bristol City could make a higher offer and outbid The Royals.
Moore is well known to Bristol City manager Lee Johnson with the player having spent time on loan at Ashton Gate last season. The defender made 10 appearances for The Robins during a four month loan stint with the club and made a positive impression upon City boss Johnson.
The 23 year old Loughborough born centre back is a product of the Leicester City academy set up. The player has gone on to make 67 appearances for The Foxes and has scored one goal. Moore has been in and out of the first team at The King Power Stadium and has spent time on loan at Bradford City and Brentford in recent seasons.
The defender has one year remaining on his current deal with Leicester City but the player is out of favour and is unlikely to feature again for the Premier League champions.
