Elliott Jordan Moore (born 16 March 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Oxford United.

Club career[edit]

Leicester City[edit]

Born in Coalville, England, Moore began his career with Leicester City at the age of 6, training with the club's Academy Development Group before signing a contract with the club at the age of 8. He gained his scholarship at the age of 16 and helped the under-18s reach the semi-final of the FA Youth cup in 2014–15.[3] That team included several players that went on to play in the Premier League with Leicester's first team - Ben Chilwell, Hamza Choudhary and Harvey Barnes. He made his under-21s debut at the age of 16 against Coalville Town in the Westerby Cup Winners' Cup final on 31 July 2013.[4] Moore went on to make over 60 appearances for the club at under-21 and under-23 levels and captained the under-23 side during the 2016–17 season.[5] His performance in the 2014–15 season earned him a nomination for Leicester's Academy Player of the Year award but he lost out to Ben Chilwell.[6]

On 18 May 2017, Moore was called up to the first team but appeared as an unused substitute in the 6–1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the last game of the season.[7] He joined the first team's pre-season tour to Austria and Asia during the Summer of 2017 and made his first appearance on 19 July 2017.[8] He came on as a half-time substitute in the Asia Trophy semi-final win over West Bromwich Albion in front of a crowd of 40,000.[2]

In August 2017, Moore signed a new two-year contract, keeping him at the King Power Stadium until July 2019, and he signed another two-year contract until 2020 the following June.[2][9]

OH Leuven (loan)[edit]

His new contract with Leicester City included a loan deal that saw him join OH Leuven, also owned by King Power.[10][2][11][12]

Moore immediately featured in the starting lineup at OH Leuven one day after signing for the club, in a 7–1 victory over Cercle Brugge.[13] Moore quickly established himself in the side following his debut.[14] On 27 August 2017, he scored the 8th goal for OH Leuven and his first for the club in an 8–0 cup win against Turnhout.[15] He scored his first league goal for the club on 8 September 2017, in a 2–0 win over Tubize,[16] and scored again on 3 October 2017, in a 3–0 win over Cercle Brugge.[17] He captained the side for the first time, following an injury to Dimitri Daeseleire, in a 2–2 draw against Cercle Brugge on 2 February 2018,[18] and also captained the following match against Lierse on 11 February 2018 before suffering an injury.[19] Moore returned from injury as captain on 1 April 2018, in a 2–2 draw against Zulte Waregem.[20] As the 2017–18 season progressed, Moore featured as captain in a number of matches, though OH Leuven failed to return to the Belgian top flight.[21] Moore finished his first season at OH Leuven having made 35 appearances and scored 3 times in all competitions.

Following the 2017–18 season, Moore rejoined Leuven on loan for a second season.[22]

Oxford United[edit]

Moore signed a three-year deal with Oxford United on 1 August 2019 for an undisclosed fee.[23] He made his debut two days later as a 94th-minute substitute in United's first league game of the 2019–20 season at Sunderland.[24]

International career[edit]

In June 2015, Moore was called up for the England U18 squad and made his only appearance for the side, in a 2–1 defeat over Russia U18.[25]

In June 2017, he was called up for the England U20 squad for the first time ahead of Toulon Tournament.[26] He made his England U20 debut on 1 June 2017 as a 68th-minute substitute in a 7–1 win over Cuba.[27] He made his full debut three days later in a 2–1 win over Japan.[28] England went on to win the Tournament and Moore received his first medal at international level.

Personal life[edit]

His father played football as a semi–professional.[12]
