Former Swindon Town goalkeeper Sol Brynn is set to join League Two champions Leyton Orient on a season-long loan deal, as confirmed by journalist Pete O’Rourke from Football Insider.
The goalkeeper impressed in League Two last season and is set to make the jump into the third tier, after penning a new contract at the Riverside Stadium with Middlesbrough.
Who is Sol Brynn?
The 22-year-old is a product of the Middlesbrough academy and had a loan spell with Scottish side Queen Of The South, before joining Swindon Town on loan last summer.
With the League Two side, Brynn made 49 appearances in all competitions, keeping 13 clean sheets in the process. He also started in all 46 of the club’s league matches last season.
Swindon to compete?
Swindon Town suffered a frustrating 2022/23 season, despite the return of fan favourite Charlie Austin on a free transfer. The club finished the season in tenth place, 14 points outside of the play-off places.
This season, the club will begin under the management of Michael Flynn as the start of a brand new era for the League Two side. Meanwhile, Leyton Orient will begin their first season back in League One, following their title-winning campaign.
What’s been said?
In a tweet from Pete O’Rourke, he stated…
‘Understand Leyton Orient have agreed a deal to sign Middlesbrough goalkeeper Sol Brynn on loan.’
Brynn impressed with Swindon Town last season and it was always likely that he’s made the jump into the third tier for the 2023/24 campaign.
The goalkeeper will be a regular with Leyton Orient next season, following the departure of their former number one to Premier League side Burnley and I expect him to do well.
