Championship side Brentford have signed Leicester City centre-back Liam Moore on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has made 14 appearances for the Foxes this season but has only featured twice in 2015, with both of those outings coming in the FA Cup.

The England Under-21 international had a loan spell with the Bees in 2013, playing seven times.

"Liam is a very talented young defender," Brentford boss Mark Warburton told the club website.external-link

"We were very aware that we were exposed to injury and lack of cover in the central defensive position.

"Liam will be a welcome addition and adds real competition for places as we enter the final stretch of what has been a good season so far."

Promotion hopefuls Brentford are just outside the Championship play-off spots, one point adrift of sixth-placed Watford.
