Cheltenham Town have today completed the loan signings of Taylor Moore, Joe Morrell and Freddie Hinds from Sky Bet Championship side Bristol City.
Defender Moore, 20, midfielder Morrell, 20, and forward Hinds, 18, have all agreed terms to move to the LCI Rail Stadium until January 1, 2018.
Manager Gary Johnson said: “We’re delighted to welcome all three players and we hope that they can play a big part in our season.
“All three are potential Championship players that need the experience of league games and all three meet the character and personality traits for players we want at the club.”
Impressive young defender Moore has represented England at every age group from Under-17s to Under-20s, captaining the Under-19s.
Born in East London, he spent time in West Ham’s Academy set-up before moving to France where he later joined Lens.
He moved to Bristol City in 2016 and spent the second half of last season at Bury, making 19 appearances to help the Manchester club avoid relegation.
“Taylor Moore has had an interesting early career with his time spent in France and he is a young England captain who has played for his country at several age groups,” said Johnson.
“He is a right back, who can also play centre back, and a quality young footballer.”
Striker Hinds was a January recruit for Bristol City from Luton Town and has already shown his credentials in the Carabao Cup this season.
The young striker scored in the wins over Plymouth Argyle and Watford, and also made his league debut in the 2-2 draw at Brentford.
“Freddie has really burst onto the scene in the last month, particularly with his goal against Premiership opposition in Watford in the cup,” said Johnson.
“He brings real energy to the squad and is a good finisher.”
Wales youth international Morrell made his debut for Bristol City at the age of 16 and has recently spent time on loan with Sutton United and Margate.
The central midfielder featured as a substitute in the 5-0 win over Plymouth Argyle earlier this month.
“Joe played very well against us in pre-season so we’re delighted he joins us,” added Johnson.
“He’s been given an opportunity to prove himself at league level and I’m sure he will look to take it with both hands.”
