Hibs linked with Leeds United defender Kris Moore

Last updated : 02 January 2024 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today been linked with a move for Leeds United defender Kris Moore.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post the Hibees are keen to bring the youngster on loan this January transfer window.

Moore is normally played at right back for Leeds reserves and U21 side, but can play anywhere across the back four.

Hibs need to bolster their defence this January, with both Lewis Miller and Rocky Bushiri away on long-term international duty and the poor form of the defence all season.

The 20-year-old is apparently thought to be ready for first team football but Leeds can't offer him that at the moment.

Hibs manager Nick Montgomery refused to talk about the link after today's 2-2 draw with Motherwell at Easter Road.


A young lad we have no knowledge off sadly.

Looks like he would come in to offer cover for the right back slot, but the fact he can play anywhere in defence is a bonus.

Will this one go through? We wait and see...
