Moore, who is 20 years old, has to go get some consistent senior game time because he has been a rock for the U21 team but hasn’t played for the senior team yet. In the preseason friendly with Manchester United, he did participate.
According to reports from earlier this week, Moore had flown out to Dubai to meet up with his potential new colleagues and was on his way to Hibernian. There has been no agreement reached with Moore or Leeds.
According to a report published on The Record’s transfer blog on January 11, 12.05, Moore is scheduled to play for Hibs today in the Middle East. They take on Servette, the Swiss group that was Diogo Monteiro’s previous team.
The Record claims that Moore will play and have the opportunity to convince Hibs boss Nick Montgomery that he is deserving of a transfer to Easter Road. It’s not obvious whether a move is permanent or just a loan.
To win a move, Leeds star Kris Moore is scheduled to play for Hibernian today.
Do or die for Moore, then. Moore has undoubtedly drawn interest from other teams, but the opportunity to play against Celtic and Rangers and join a team the size of Hibs will undoubtedly entice him.
Moore should hopefully do well enough in today’s friendly to warrant a transfer for Leeds, Hibs, and the player himself. Moore has no reason to continue playing in the twenty-first century. He’s played above that level.
However, he won’t be able to play for Leeds in the senior team, thus a permanent transfer—or at the very least, a temporary loan—away from Elland Road is necessary. A transfer to Hibs would be excellent for the Leeds academy product.
