Done Deal: Sheffield United capture Championship goalkeeper



Sheffield United have announced the official signing of Cardiff goalkeeper Simon Moore.

Moore arrives at Sheffield United for an undisclosed fee and he puts pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the Blades.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper was second choice to David Marshall at Cardiff City, which limited his game time so he has dropped down a league in the search for regular first-team football.

He played 17 games in a three-year stint with the Bluebirds and spent a period on loan at Bristol City too.

The towering 6’3” goalkeeper was born in the Isle of Wight and represented them at the Island Games in 2009.

After starting his career with non-league Brading Town, Moore made a name for himself during his time at Brentford.

He grabbed his first team opportunity – having previously been second choice to Wojciech Szczesny and Richard Lee – and went on to play 77 times for the Bees before joining Cardiff for an undisclosed fee.

Moore will hope to get plenty of game time with Sheffield United at a crucial stage in his career.

Sheffield United fans – what do you think? Is Moore a good signing? Is he better than George Long?

Cardiff fans – are you disappointed to see him go? Is Ben Wilson good enough to be second choice or do you need to buy a new back-up goalkeeper?
