Sturrock Keen On Moore

Owls boss Paul Sturrock is keen on bringing out-of-favour Leeds United and former Burnley striker Ian Moore to Hillsborough, according to reports in the Daily Star.

Sturrock wants to bring two more players into the Owls squad ahead of pre-season training, and has already made former Everton hero Duncan Ferguson a contract offer, which was rejected.

Moore, the son of former Rotherham United and Oldham manager Ronnie, has fallen out-of-favour with Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell and has made just six starts for the Elland Road side since his 50,000 move from Burnely in March 2005.

Sturrock has made it clear he wants to bring Liverpool and England goalkeeper Scott Carson to Hillsborough on a season-long loan next season, but with Carson being involved in the World Cup Finals in Germany for the next month, the move may have to wait.

It's thought Sturrock may want to bring in another midfielder and a striker to bolster his squad ahead of the new campaign. Former loanee Yoann Folly is high on Sturrock's priority list and may be approached, along with Moore, early next week.

Moore made his name with Stockport County where he netted 20 times in 83 starts after moving from West Ham for 800,000. He then moved to Burnely where he netted 37 times from 170 starts.

From Teamtalk: Ian Moore's agent Phil Smith poured cold water on the proposed move saying: "I have not had any contact regarding that. It is no more than a rumour."
