Arsenal defender arrives on loan

Gareth Ainsworth brings Tafari Moore to Adams Park.

12 January 2018

Gareth Ainsworth has made an exciting addition to the squad, bringing Arsenal youngster Tafari Moore to Adams Park on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The right-back, aged 20, has been with the Gunners since the age of 12, gaining first-team experience on loan at FC Utrecht in Holland last season and representing England at all youth levels up to under-20.

Moore goes straight into the squad to face Colchester United in the Sky Bet League Two fixture at Adams Park on Saturday (k.o. 3pm).

Ainsworth said: “We’ve picked up a few too many injuries in defence recently so there was an opportunity to move into the loan market and I’m really pleased to have brought Tafari in for the rest of the season.

“He’s trained with us this week and proved himself to be a very talented defender who will also be a threat going forward.

“We’ve been proud to have played our part in the development of a few young loanees over the past few seasons, giving several players their EFL debut, and we hope Tafari will be another success story.”

Moore will wear squad number 18 during his time with the club.
