​Arsenal defender Tafari Moore looks set to join Dutch side FC Utrecht on a season-long loan, according to ​​rep​orts in Holland.


The 19-year-old is a highly-rated product of Arsenal's academy, having been at the club since he was 12.

Moore, who signed a new long-term deal at Arsenal in January, is expected to join the Eredivisie outfit in order to gain vital first-team experience.


He is currently on trial at Utrecht, and has impressed manager Erik ten Hag after playing against Roda JC in a friendly earlier this week.


Moore also came on as a second-half substitute during Utrecht's 1-1 draw with Espanyol on Tuesday, and is widely expected to complete his loan-move in the coming days.


The versatile defender plays mainly as a right-back, but can also play in any position across the back-line. He is known as an energetic defender, with the ability to make powerful marauding runs up the field.

Earlier this month, Moore was called-up to the England under-19 squad for the European Championship Finals. 


England made it to the semi-finals, eventually losing out 2-1 to Italy despite having more than double the amount of shots on goal than their opposition.


Moore has become a key figure at England youth level, becoming a regular after winning the under-17 European Championships in 2014.
