WORCESTER City midfielder Ethan Moran has joined Malvern Town on an initial three-month loan period.

City confirmed that a loan move was viewed as the “best option” for Moran after he expressed his desire to start most weeks.

All parties will then review the situation when his deal with Malvern expires later this year.

In February, Moran signed a contract at City until the end of next season.

Malvern who play in the Hellenic League Division One West visit Fulwood Amateurs AFC on Saturday (3pm).
