I dont think that is correct. Moreno finished the 15/16 season as first choice left back. We tried but missed out on Chilwell that summer, and decided to pass on Robertson.At that point Moreno was back up to Milner as per the season that just ended. Chilwell was second choice at Leicester and more comfortable staying there and working to become their first choice (like he did) than come here and compete with Moreno to become first back up to Milner.
Milner was reportedly cover for Albie because we had no other left backs come in during that window. He was out injured for the first match, against Arsenal, but started against Burnley. I dont know if that was because that was always the plan, or because of the criticism of Albie in the Arsenal game.
