Taylor David Moore (born 12 May 1997) is an English footballer who plays for Bristol City as a defender, playing in the right-back or centre-back position.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Moore playing for Lens B.

Moore was born in Walthamstow in East London, but moved to France as a 7-year-old.[4] Moore spent a year in the academy of his local side West Ham United before moving to France.[3] Upon arriving in France, he joined an amateur club called Etaples before joining the academy at RC Lens at the age of 12.[4]

RC Lens[edit]

Having made a progression through the RC Lens' academy, Moore signed his first professional contract with the club on 8 December 2014.[5]

On 3 May 2015, with Antoine Kombouaré coach, he made his first-team debut for Lens, starting in an away derby match against Lille playing out of position at right back for the first time in his life and producing an assist for his teams only goal in a 3–1 loss.[6][7] Moore went on to make four appearance in the 2014-15 season.

In the 2015-16 season, Moore made five appearance for the club.[8] However, his first team opportunities were soon limited after he fell out of favor with Manager Kombouaré and was sent to play in the reserves.[9] Despite this, Moore was the subject of a 10 million euro transfer bid from Lyon in the January transfer window. However, RC Lens rejected the bid, demanding 15 million euro instead.[10] Moore was expected to leave the club by the end of the January transfer window, but no club made a move for him and he stayed at the club for the rest of the season.[11]

Ahead of the 2016-17 season, Moore's future at RC Lens became uncertain[12] and found himself linked with a move back to England, with Bristol City,[13]Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, West Ham United and Crystal Palace keen on signing him.[14] Amid the transfer speculation, Moore was expected to fight for a first team place under the new management of Alain Casanova.[15]

Bristol City[edit]

On 25 August 2016, Moore signed for Championship club Bristol City on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £1.5m.[16] Upon joining the club, Moore revealed that then-teammate Tammy Abraham played a role in helping him join Bristol City.[17] He made his debut in a EFL Cup match away to Fulham, in which Bristol City won 2-1.[18]

Less than a week after the January transfer window opened in 2017, Moore was loaned out to struggling League One side Bury to gain further experience.[19]

On 30 August 2017, Moore signed for Cheltenham Town on loan until January 2018.[20]

International career[edit]

Moore represented England at England U17, England U18 levels, and captained the England U19's.[21] He was a part of the U-17 team that won the European Championships in 2014.[22] He has 2 caps for the England U20's.
