As quoted by Yorkshire Live, Moore said:

“It’s an incident that happened before I came to the club and had no control over.

“Please don’t harbour your frustration on the boy because he’s a Wednesday fan and committed to the club. It’s a situation that has happened.

“I can understand the frustration of everybody but we have got to look at the facts. They are what they are but he is still contracted to us and got a huge part to play for the remainder of the season.”
