Who is Kean Bryan?

Kean Bryan was born in Manchester on November 1, 1996, and joined the Manchester City youth set-up at the age of 11.

While he is yet to make inroads into his parent club’s star-studded first-team squad, he impressed on loan moves to League One clubs.

Last season, he made 12 appearances for Bury, although he suffered the ignominy of being sent off for the first time in his professional career in a local derby with Rochdale.

During the last campaign, the 21-year-old turned out for Oldham Athletic, scoring his first pro goal against Fleetwood in September 2017.

He has achieved international recognition at youth level, representing England U-16s, U-17s, U-19s and U-20s.

And currently, the 22-year-0ld plays for Sheffield United.
