Liam Moore will benefit from loan move, says Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson
Allowing young defender Liam Moore to join Brentford on loan for the rest of the season will be good for all parties, Nigel Pearson believes.
The Leicester City boss said the 20-year-old had been allowed to join the Bees to gain valuable pitch-time having not made an appearance for the club since the win at Burnley on December 29.
And he revealed that, although the departure may leave him light of cover at full-back, Moore can be recalled at any time.
"It is good for him to get out there and play some football," said Pearson. "He has not played a lot of games recently.

"When you have got players who maybe have been in the squad or on the bench, they don't get pitch time. With it being a youth loan, we have that ability to recall him.
"It is good for all parties. We get one of our players to play some matches so it is good for everyone.
"He has had a very good season. He will obviously be disappointed not to be currently playing but things can change very quickly in the sense that sometimes opportunities come when you least expect them. But you have to be ready to take those chances when they come."
Moore said the time was right for him to go out on loan.
"It was a big step up at the start of the season in the Championship," he told the Brentford official website.
"I played a lot of games last year in League Two and I had a bit of a taste back at Leicester at the end of last season.
"I started the season playing a lot of games for Leicester and it has faded away a bit as they have got a few options there.
"Nigel Pearson has always been honest with me.
"He has faith in me which is nice. I spoke to him and we both agreed that it was time for me to come and get games.
"I've come to a top League One team, which was my aim, and I am happy to be here."
