LIAM Moore has allegedly handed Reading FC a transfer request as a final push to secure himself Premier League football next season.

With just six days remaining until the start of the Championship season, Moore has reportedly dealt Paul Clement a massive blow.

Royals turned down a number of bids form Brighton & Hove Albion for the 25-year-old earlier in the transfer window after they failed to meet Royals’ valuation.

Moore looked set to stay at Madejski Stadium but reports yesterday claimed he has demanded Reading sell him this summer.

Reading FC are yet to confirm the rumours and Moore could face Crystal Palace in Royals’ final pre-season friendly this afternoon (3pm ko).

And fans had mixed views on Moore’s future.

They wrote: “If Liam Moore’s as good as we think he is why were we so bad defensively last season? If we get offered £15m, £12m even £10m then the club HAVE to say yes, because not having him in this team would make us no worse defensively. Tell me I’m wrong?

“Personally hope it's not true because he is without doubt the most consistent player at the club and he would be a massive loss to us.

“If he has requested let him go. On his day he is our best player. On an off day he isn't much better than what we already have.”

Moore joined Royals from Premier League side Leicester City in 2016.

He was lured to Madejski Stadium by Jaap Stam and took a pay cut to join the Dutchman’s side.

The 25-year-old has been virtually ever-present since his switch and signed a new four-year deal in 2017.

He has three years remaining on his current contract meaning Royals can demand a big fee for the defender.

Moore scooped Royals' Player of the Year gong last season.

He has made 96 appearances for Reading so far, scoring four goals.
