Kieffer Moore Signs For Wigan Athletic

Wigan Athletic have confirmed the signing of striker Kieffer Moore from Barnsley on a three-year deal.

Latics agreed an undisclosed fee with the Tykes for Moore’s services and the striker, who has scored 36 goals over the course of the past two campaigns, will link up with his new teammates for training on Tuesday ahead of Saturday’s clash with Preston North End.

Moore, 26, began his career with amateur side Paignton Saints before spells with Truro City and Dorchester Town in non-league preceded a move to then Championship side Yeovil Town in 2013.

Following a two-year spell with the Glovers, Moore spent a brief period in Norway with Viking FK before moving to Forest Green Rovers in 2016. A loan spell with Torquay United followed and Moore impressed at Plainmoor, securing a move to Ipswich Town as a result.

A loan to Rotherham United in July 2017 kick-started Moore’s professional career as he scored 13 goals and made five assists in 24 appearances, prompting Barnsley to add him to their squad in January 2018.

Since his move to Oakwell, Moore has scored 23 times in 55 appearances, form which saw him secure Barnsley’s top goal-scorer award for 2018/19 as the Tykes won promotion to the Sky Bet Championship and resulted in him being named in the PFA Sky Bet League One Team of the Year.
