Former Solihull Moors goalkeeper Louie Moulden is a summer transfer target for League Two side Accrington Stanley, according to journalist Alan Nixon.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper is tipped to join the League Two side on loan for the 2023/24 season, in a bid to secure regular first-team football following his impressive spell with Solihull Moors last season.
Who is Louie Moulden?
The 21-year-old was a product of both the Liverpool and Manchester City youth set-ups, before signing for fellow Premier League side Wolves. He also had a loan stint with Ebbsfleet United, before joining Solihull Moors on loan last summer.
With the Moors, Moulden made 17 appearances in all competitions, keeping three clean sheets. He also saved three penalties during his time with the National League side, before being recalled in January 2023.
Aiming to bounce back
Last season Solihull Moors finished 15th in the National League after a disappointing 2022/23 season, as well as losing several key players such as Andy Dallas to Chesterfield and Ryan Barnett to Wrexham. Therefore, the club will be aiming to bounce back next season.
Meanwhile, Accrington Stanley were relegated from League One last season and will also be eager to bounce back next season as they begin their preparations ahead of the 2023/24 League Two campaign.
What’s been said?
According to Alan Nixon, Accrington Stanley are on the search for a new first-choice goalkeeper next season and they have identified the Wolves goalkeeper as their top priority.
Having watched Louie Moulden at Solihull Moors, I know he is an excellent goalkeeper and is rated fairly highly by the Premier League side.
Accrington Stanley needs several reinforcements in order to prepare for the new season and Moulden would be a strong addition between the sticks for the League Two side next season.
