Moreno started his career with UNAM before spending three years in the Eredivisie with AZ Alkmaar, making 80 league appearances before moving to Espanyol in 2011. In Spain, Moreno played in over 110 La Liga matches, scoring seven goals.

The centre back has 59 caps for Mexico and was involved in the World Cup defeat to Netherlands last year.

Moreno won’t be involved for PSV in their tie with Groningen on Sunday as they wait for his work permit.
