Bradford boss McCall keen on Derby defender Moore

Bradford City boss Stuart McCall has played down talk of a move for Derby County veteran Darren Moore.

"If we could manage to get someone of the calibre of Darren Moore to our football club, it would be the biggest coup since I came back," McCall told the Telegraph & Argus.

"He would be the type of professional I would love to have at the club. He has matured since my time as a player with him and is the sort of character and leader that would be an absolute joy to have here.

"It would be an unbelievable signing if that was ever to come about."

However, McCall does no believe he has much chance of landing Moore.

He explained: "I would rate it extremely unlikely and he has another year on his contract at Derby anyway, so that will quash that rumour.

"I don't know where the rumours have come from. The last time I spoke to Darren was a couple of months ago.

"I remember Paul Jewell saying that Darren has been one of their most consistent players during a horrible season and, if he was to become available, I'm sure there would be at least another 30 clubs higher than us in for him."
