Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in the Leicestershire town of Loughborough,[3] Moore began his career with Leicester City, where he was captain of the youth team that reached the quarter-finals of the 2010–11 FA Youth Cup.[4]

Loan to Bradford City[edit]

Moore signed a one-month loan contract with Bradford City on 5 August 2011.[5][6] He made his senior debut on 6 August 2011 in a 2–1 defeat away to Aldershot.[7] Moore's announced his desire to stay with Bradford City at the end of the initial month's duration,[8] and his loan was later extended until 31 December 2011.[9] Moore returned to his parent club following the end of his loan deal on 31 December 2011.[10] Moore ended his Bradford loan with 22 appearances to his name.[11]

Return to Leicester[edit]

After returning to Leicester, Moore made his debut for them two days later, starting the game against Crystal Palace on 2 January 2012.[12] After becoming a first-team regular at the start of the 2012–13 season, Moore was scouted by Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Aston Villa.[13] He signed a new three-year contract with the club in September 2012.[14]

Loan to Brentford[edit]

On 20 February 2013, Moore joined Brentford on loan until the end of the 2012–13 season.[15] He made seven appearances without scoring.[16]

Return to Leicester[edit]

Moore was recalled to Leicester on 30 March 2013, to act as cover during club captain Wes Morgan's suspension.[17] Moore scored his first ever senior goal for Leicester on 14 September 2013, scoring the opener in an eventual 2–0 home victory over Wigan Athletic.[18] His impressive performances early on in the 2013–14 season saw him being named the Football League Young Player of the Month for September 2013.[19] Moore has credited club captain Wes Morgan and manager Nigel Pearson with his improved form.[20]

Moore playing for Leicester City in 2014

In January 2014 he was the subject of transfer bids from Premier League club Fulham.[21][22]

Moore made his Premier League debut in Leicester's opening day, playing the entirety of a 2–2 draw at home to Everton on 16 August 2014.[23]

Back to Brentford[edit]

On 26 February 2015, Moore joined Brentford on loan until the end of the 2014–15 season.[24] He went straight into the starting lineup, displacing Harlee Dean, before being dropped from the squad in favour of Dean after three "stuttering" appearances.[25] Moore failed to appear again and was recalled to the King Power Stadium on 2 April.[26]

Bristol City[edit]

He signed on loan for Bristol City on 1 September 2015, until 4 January 2016.[27]

International career[edit]

Moore has represented England at under-17 and under-21 youth international level.[28]

On 8 November 2012, he was called up to the England under-21 team for the first time for a friendly against Northern Ireland.[29] He made his debut in the game, coming on as a substitute in the 83rd minute for Jack Robinson.[30] He was recalled to the under-21 squad in November 2013.[31] Moore helped England reach the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship by scoring in the second leg of the play-offs, which England won 2–1 against Croatia.[32] England had already won the first leg 2–1, which meant they progressed to the finals with a 4–2 aggregate win.[33]
