Middlesbrough make last ditch move for Wigan forward
Middlesbrough could stop Cardiff City's hopes of signing Wales forward Kieffer Moore, according to reports.
Despite initial reports claiming that Cardiff City were the favourites for the Wigan forward, there has been a surprising sting in the tail.
It is understood that Boro boss Neil Warnock has made a move for Kieffer Moore and Boro are working on bringing the forward to the Riverside Stadium.
Moore is believed to the the number one target for Cardiff City boss Neil Harris, who wants to build the attack around the 6ft 5in forward.
However, Moore is undecided as he knows that he will fit perfectly into Warnock's style of play. The veteran manager is known for utilising a strong sturdy target-man throughout his career.
The Wigan forward was impressive this season, displaying a good vein of form that saw him win his debut cap for Wales last November.
The Northern Echo claims that both Middlesbrough and Cardiff City have had bids of £2 million accepted by Wigan and the player is expected to make a decision soon. Championship rivals Stoke City, Queens Park Rangers and Millwall have also shown an interest in signing the forward.
