Brentford boss Mark Warburton has not ruled out a move for Leicester City defender Liam Moore.
The Bees are reported to be interested in bringing centre-back Moore, who had a seven-game loan spell with the club two years ago, back to the club.
The former England U21 international has been restricted to 14 appearance this season as Leicester have struggled to adapt to life back in the Premier League.
Bees boss Warburton said: “Liam came here before and was very impressive, and I already knew him well because he played in the same youth team at Leicester as my son.
“But he is a Leicester player, and it would be disrespectful of me to talk about another club's player – it's as simple as that.
“I know the club well and we have a great relationship with Leicester City, as they have loaned us Jeffrey Schlupp in the past as well.”
