Lynden Gooch has excelled for Sunderland in the English Under-21 Premier League, and now the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team midfielder will have the chance to prove himself in League One.
On Thursday, Sunderland announced that Gooch has joined League One side Doncaster Rovers on a one-month loan. The short-term move away from the club will be Gooch’s second loan spell after spending time with fifth-division side Gateshead last season.
The 20-year-old midfielder made his first-team debut for Sunderland back in September by appearing in a 6-3 Capital One Cup victory over Exeter City. To this point, Gooch has mainly featured for the club’s U-21 side, racking up five goals in ten appearances while winning the Barclays U-21 Player of the Month award in August.
Doncaster returns to action Saturday with a visit to Fleetwood Town.
What do you think of the move? How will Gooch fare with Doncaster? What are your expectations for him in the coming years?
