Transfer close to confirmed, Leicester City will cash in and say farewell

Elliott Moore will make a switch to Oxford United as his chances for a place in the Leicester City line-up looks far away. The young defender spent the two last seasons on loan at sister club Leuven and played regularly.

The 22 year old former England U.20 international made 61 league appearances in Belgium and scored 7 goals. His talent is known and he will be a good addition to the team at Oxford United.

Moore has been with Leicester City since the age of six, and penned a new three year deal in 2017, with a year now remaining. No fee is confirmed but the value of Elliott Moore is set to around £750.000 and hopefully Leicester City will be able to get the recognition in the payment that reflects the value.

To see homegrown talent leave is a bit sad, and would have hoped that Elliott Moore had a future at Leicester City, but again no idea to stop progress for a young talent if you cannot offer anything, so then to cash in a say farewell is probably correct.

Brendan Rodgers will of course make space and hopefully be able to reduce the wage bill and take the tally of players down, with more bodies expected to leave before the transfer window or later on loan deals at other clubs.
