Both excited and moved (7)


I believe the answer is:

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'moved' is the definition.
(stirring is a kind of moving)

'both excited' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'both' could be 't' (I've seen this in other clues) and 't' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'sirred' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

'and' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for stirred that I've seen before include "Emotionally moved", "Began to wake", "Excited", "Rose from sleep", "Aroused; agitated".)
