Confirmed: FC Utrecht complete signing of Arsenal star


Eredivisie side FC Utrecht have confirmed the signing of Arsenal defender Tafari Moore on a season-long loan deal.

It was reported a number of weeks ago that the 19-year-old right back had joined the club for a short period to have a trial ahead of a potential loan move, with Moore clearly proving himself to be a more than useful addition to the club.

The full back has been an impressive member of the Gunners’ under-21s set-up over the last couple of years but the return of Chiori Johnson from injury problems saw his competition increased towards the end of last season and a shift to the left side of the defence.

However, the defender will now have the opportunity to prove himself on a more competitive level in the Netherlands.

Whether the England youth starlet will force his way into the Arsenal first-team or not is yet to be seen, with 21-year-old Hector Bellerin one of the stand-out names in the side.
