New Deal For Former Swindon Town Goalkeeper

Promising keeper Sol Brynn has agreed a new two year contract at Middlesbrough according to Football Insider reporter, Pete O’Rourke.

The 22 year-old who enjoyed a successful loan at Swindon Town this season has shown enough to convince Boro boss Michael Carrick to extend Brynn’s stay at the Riverside Stadium.

Brynn became a fans favourite with the Robins, clinching the club’s player of the season award and will be hoping to stake a claim to be a first team regular at his boyhood club in 2023/24.

A host of clubs are said to be interested in taking the keeper next season, but Carrick has been impressed enough by his form to offer him two more years on his deal which was set to expire next summer and will look to him to challenge for the number one spot.

Brynn played every minute of Swindon’s League Two campaign, keeping 13 clean sheets and was a stand out player in what was an ordinary season for the men from the County Ground as they finished 10th, 14 points adrift of the playoff places.

Brynn also had a loan spell north of the border with Queen Of The South in 2021/22.

Middlesborough’s keeper situation will be high on Carrick’s list of priorities as he prepares for another assault on promotion after seeing his side beaten by Coventry in the play off semi finals.
Zak Steffen has returned to Manchester City after his own loan spell and it remains to be seen if the USA international will return.

Carrick will decide if either Brynn or fellow back up keeper, Liam Roberts can make the step up, or opt to bring in a more established pair of hands ahead of the new season.

Luke Daniels, Boro’s other keeping option, looks set to depart when his deal expires next month.

Writer’s View

Brynn made a big impression during his loan spell at Swindon and at 22 looks to have a big future and will be hoping he can persuade Carrick not to delve into the market for an alternative.
His consistency over a tough 46 game campaign in League Two means he heads back to his hometown club in confident mood.
