Arsenal youngster Tafari Moore has joined Wycombe Wanderers until the end of the season.

The right-back becomes Gareth Ainsworth's first January signing as he looks to strengthen the Chairboys' play-off push.

Moore, 20, has been with Premier League side Arsenal since he was just 12-years-old.

He spent last season on loan at FC Utrecht in Holland.

The defensive starlet will go straight into Wanderers' squad to face Colchester United at Adams Park tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm KO) Ainsworth said: “We’ve picked up a few too many injuries in defence recently so there was an opportunity to move into the loan market and I’m really pleased to have brought Tafari in for the rest of the season.

“He’s trained with us this week and proved himself to be a very talented defender who will also be a threat going forward.

“We’ve been proud to have played our part in the development of a few young loanees over the past few seasons, giving several players their EFL debut, and we hope Tafari will be another success story.”

Moore will wear squad number 18 during his time in Buckinghamshire.
