We are delighted to announce the signing of talented midfielder Ryan Trevitt on loan from Premier League side Brentford – our fifth inbound transfer of the summer window.
The 20-year-old has won much acclaim at the Bees, having ended last season with 16 goals and nine assists in 27 appearances for Brentford B and going on to wins the club’s Mary Halder Award, which recognises achievements in progression, attitude and professionalism.
Trevitt was plucked from non-league Leatherhead and joined the Bees in late 2020 after a successful trial and made his first team debut in August 2022. As well as gaining regular training minutes with the first team throughout the campaign, Trevitt joined the side in Spain for during a mid-season trip during the World Cup.
For the B team, Trevitt has scored crucial goals, including one at the Gtech Community Stadium against Blackburn as the Bees went on to lift the Premier League Cup last season. Goals against sides from across Europe, such as Jong PSV Eindhoven and Monaco under-21s can also be added to his tally.
"Ryan is someone I've been looking at since January," manager Caldwell said of his new recruit.
"He has a big future ahead of him. I spent a day last season at Brentford to watch him and speak to the staff to see how they do things, and I got to see him score and assist in the Premier League Cup.
"I was really excited that night and we have worked really hard to bring him here. He is an old school midfielder who can do everything. He can control in the deeper positions but can also arrive in the box to score and assist.
"His quality is one thing, but his versatility is brilliant as well."
Welcome aboard, Ryan!
