Watford have already approached Leicester with a loan offer, but Rovers and Fulham are both in the running. Fulham had a £2.5 million bid for Moore rejected last January, whilst they were in the Premier League.

Moore is a product of the Leicester academy, and captained the youth side that reached the FA Youth Cup quarter finals in 2011. He made 30 appearances in the Foxes promotion campaign last year, but has only made 11 in the Premier League this season.

He has previously has interest from Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham, Everton and Aston Villa in 2012, before signing a new deal at the club.

Watford will be looking to replace Sebastian Bassong, who was loaned out from Norwich City to replace long-term absentee Grabriel Tamas. His loan runs out tomorrow.

Fulham currently have the worst defence in the Championship, with 43 goals conceded this season. They will be looking to Moore to sure up their leaky defence.

The only way Blackburn can sign players this January is through the loan market, after being handed a transfer embargo for breaching Financial Fair Play rules. Moore could add that element of Premier League experience that could help them push on in their promotion campaign.

Leicester could be adverse to letting Moore leave, as they currently have the second worst defence in the Premier League. Moore could be rotated in to help strengthen their back four.

Watford are currently in fifth in the Sky Bet Championship table on 41 points, Blackburn in ninth place on 35 points and Fulham are in 17th on 28 points.
