Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has revealed that young goalkeeper Max O’Leary is poised to join National League club Solihull Moors on a short term loan deal according to the Bristol Post.

The 21-year-old Bath born stopper is rated very highly by The Robins however the player is in need of regular first team football if he is going to challenge for a place in the senior squad in the future.

It has been revealed that O’Leary has agreed terms with National League basement boys Solihull Moors and the youngster is expected to move to Damson Park on a loan deal until the first week of January.

The temporary switch away from Ashton Gate will be the player’s third with O’Leary having already represented Kidderminster Harriers and hometown club Bath City in his senior career to date. O’Leary made five appearances  in National League North for The Harriers in 2015/2016 before enjoying 26 outings with Bath City last term.

O’Leary has come through Bristol City’s academy system and the player has gone on to make two senior appearances for The Robins both of which have come in FA Cup ties almost two years ago.

The youngster is unlikely to be handed another outing for his parent club this season therefore it is best for O’Leary’s development for him to go out on loan.
