According to today's Greenock Telegraph, Moore has opened talks with 26-year-old O'Brien (pictured: tussling with Peter Weatherson and Kevin Finlayson in 2007), who joined the Forthbank side in 2001 and spent seven seasons there before moving to Dundee in the summer of 2007.
However, his time at Dens Park was short-lived and he was released after just two seasons. He then had an even shorter spell at Ayr United, where his contract was cancelled by 'mutual consent' after two months when he expressed his anger at being dropped for a match. Upon hearing of his release, Moore wasted no time in bringing him back to Stirling and now looks set to sign him for a second time.
"I'd like to take Andy Graham, the right-back, but he's been offered pre-season by Hamilton," he told the BBC's Keir Murray. "I had him for five years and he's the best professional I've ever worked with.
"The other one is left winger David O'Brien. He went to Dundee and it never happened for him but I believe I can get the best out of him."Greenock Telegraph - Moore Wants To Sign Stirling Pair (31.05.2010)
