With his situation at Bolton currently up in the air, it awaits to be seen how Lynch’s situation pans out.

The Eastbourne-born man is still available on a free transfer after being released by Sunderland last summer. With bags of Football League experience under his belt, Lynch could prove to be a shrewd acquisition on a free.

Lynch started his career with Brighton and Hove Albion, leaving to join Nottingham Forest in 2008. In four years at the City Ground, the defender featured 90 times before departing for Huddersfield Town.

After four years with the Terriers, QPR swooped in to sign Lynch in 2016. Across all competitions, the left-sided defender played in 95 games for the R’s. Lynch nailed down a spot in their backline, chipping in with seven goals and two assists.
