28-year-old Moore, who’s currently away with Wales in the European Championships, kickstarted his career in Rotherham on loan throughout the 2017/18 campaign and helped the Millers to gain promotion to the Championship via the playoffs, before moving permanently from Ipswich Town to Barnsley.
Since that time, the forwards has enjoyed spells in the Tykes, Wigan Athletic along with his present club, together with Moore scoring 20 goals for the Bluebirds last season. Despite impressing at the DW Stadium for Wigan throughout the 2019/20 campaign, their financial issues and following administration supposed he was available at a reduced price, and Cardiff took advantage of that by registering the 28-year-old to a three-year deal.
His former supervisor Warne saw his prospective method back in 2017 and in a meeting with local outlet Yorkshire Todayhe reminisced about the Moore days at the New York Stadium, stating :”I remember one of our last games of the Championship year (in 2016-17) and he triggered Woody (Richard Wood) no end of issues.
“In fairness, I have signed two players on the rear of that — Michael Smith and Kieffer.
“Kieffer was just one who broke the mould. His work ethic was brilliant, he wanted to improve and his attitude was spot on and had no sympathy at all and didn’t have some feeling of entitlement, which can be very unique with modern footballers.”
Three years on from his fascination Yorkshire, Moore is just one of the primary strikers from the Championship and scored Wales’ equaliser from Switzerland in their opening match of the year’s European Championships.
With this, the Rotherham director now considers the Welshman is prepared to make the step up into the best flight in this window — and lots of Premier League sides could be interested in acquiring his services when he continues to impress for Wales in the upcoming few weeks.
“Kieffer is far past that line of proving people wrong now, he has done the entire circle,” Warne continued.
“I have had probably six or seven managers phone me in the past couple of years saying:’Do you think he can do it ?’
“And I really do and I honestly think he goes after this summer to the Premier League. Because you can’t tell me he cannot do exactly what (Christian) Benteke does for Crystal Palace in my view.
“I can imagine they (Cardiff) might find the odd deal or two that is too hard to turn down.”
