Shaq Moore signs with Spanish side Real Oviedo


U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team defender Shaq Moore is staying in Spain.

On Thursday, Segunda Division side Real Oviedo announced that the club has signed the American right back. In addition, the club stated that Moore has begun training with Real Oviedo Vetusta, the club’s reserve team that features in the fourth division of Spanish soccer. Terms of the deal were not disclosed in the club’s release

Born in Powder Springs, Georgia, Moore was previously a member of Spanish side Huracan, and played in six games during 2015.

The 19-year-old started in two games for the U.S. during the Under-20 World Cup last summer, and has frequently been a call-up for the U.S. U-20, U-18 and U-17 Men’s National Teams.

What do you think of this move? How do you think Moore will do in 2016?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. This is the team that Carlos Slim has some investment in, so they will probably find themselves in la Liga sooner or later.

  2. They’re currently 3rd in the table for those curious, 1 point out of 2nd. 4 points ahead of the 7th place club. (Top 2 teams get automatic promotion, 3-6 go to playoffs for final spot.)

        I think mine were better. One day I hope to call Shaq Moore “The Little Aristotle”.

        I rap as “AMPhibian” as well, and so of course have made several tadpole and pond scum references. . .which reminds me of this little section from one of my songs.

        why else would earth raise you from a tadpole,
        if it condemned your birth and race toward fad goals?
        if it recoiled from your each step on her soil,
        one day she would eat you, leach you into oil scum,
        strew what remains in the sea with your loyal chums,
        offhand, no ceremony nor royal drums,
        utterly forgotten, just another plaster saint,
        confused mote of dust, unfree of past restraints,
        former perspectives assimilated mask and taint,
        what you were, what it meant to pass so fast and faint,
        that you were only a child sent to laugh and paint,
        that you were only a child. . .

  3. Not a bad move, most of their backline is over 30. His main competition is going to be Diegui, who is 22 but not really that talented. Shaq should be able to get some serious minutes next year if he can adapt to the squad and the league.
