Sources: Middlesbrough goalkeeper Sol Brynn agrees deal as Carrick plan revealed

Middlesbrough goalkeeper Sol Brynn has agreed a new deal at the Riverside Stadium, sources have told Football Insider.

The 22-year-old enjoyed an outstanding season on loan at Swindon Town this term and was named the club’s Player of the Season in their end-of-season awards.

Several clubs have been keeping tabs on Brynn‘s impressive performances on loan, but Middlesbrough have moved quickly to secure his long-term future with a new deal.

Football Insider revealed Boro’s plans to hold talks with the goalkeeper earlier this month (11 May).

Brynn’s existing deal was due to expire in 2024.

It is believed that Boro boss Michael Carrick will give him the chance to fight for a place in the side next season.
