Moore, 22, has failed to become a regular starter under Nigel Pearson in the Barclays Premier League, with the defender not appearing in a league game in 2015.

The Foxes defender joined the club in 2011 and has since gone on to amass 59 appearances for the club, his breakthrough season was arguably last season, where he aided to club to automatic promotion to the top-flight.

Moore has already had one loan spell at Brentford in 2013, where he went on to make seven appearances for the club.

The 6ft 1 centre-back did also have a loan spell at League One outfit Bradford City, where he amassed a total of 17 appearances.

Moore is renowned for his versatility and can operate as centre-back or right-back, so he would be a useful addition to any Championship side.

Both Brentford and Watford are in contention for a play-off spot in the second tier, with Watford currently sitting in fifth place in the division, whilst Brentford lie just outside them in seventh place.

Moore recently hinted at a loan move away from Leicester to help him get more game-time, telling the FA website: “I’ve got to be playing football here at Leicester and that’s my priority because international football comes from your club form,” he told

“There’s not too many opportunities for the [England] coaching staff to see you in training, so it’s important I can get a few more games and then kick-on from there.
