According to reports, Brighton and Hove Albion target Liam Moore has handed in a transfer request at Reading as he looks to secure himself a move to the Premier League.
Sky Sports’ transfer centre reported yesterday that the 25-year-old former Leicester City Academy graduate had taken the next step in ensuring his departure from the Madejski Stadium by submitting a formal transfer request given the interest in him this summer.
Brighton have figured highly in that and the rumour mill has us making three firm bids, but those offers were rejected by his current club. Since our last offer reports and speculation has gone quiet and we have been linked with alternative options for cover in the heart of defence but for obvious reasons, with this development we are being named as being back in the mix for him.
I must say, looking around I can see no official confirmation of this written request so it’s generally safer to err on the side of caution with these things when it comes to the press but it’s certainly worth paying a little bit more attention to once again.
