Moore signs Foxes extension

21 September 2012

Highly-rated Leicester defender Liam Moore has agreed a contract extention to keep him at the King Power Stadium until June 2015.

The 19-year-old academy graduate has made himself a first-team fixture under Nigel Pearson this season, appearing in six of the Foxes' eight league and cup outings.

Pearson told Leicester's official website: "Liam has made excellent progress since graduating from the academy and has shown a great deal of quality and maturity since being regularly involved with the first-team squad.

"His talent will be obvious to those that have seen him play, but he's also a very level-headed young man that has adapted remarkably well to the demands of the Championship.

"He still has plenty to learn, but I am delighted to have him as part of our long-term plans."

Elsewhere, 17-year-old forwards Harry Panayiotou and Joe Dodoo have agreed their first professional contracts, while James Pearson - the manager's 19-year-old son - has penned a one-year deal following a trial period.
