An agreement between AFC Sudbury and Bury Town has been made for the permanent transfer of young defender Kyran Clements.

Subject to paperwork completion and an undisclosed fee, the 20-year-old defender will join up with Ben Chenery’s squad for pre-season training next week.

Kyran who is a graduate of the AFC Sudbury Academy, spent the entire of last season at the Ram Meadow-based club on a season-long loan.

Previously he made a name for himself captaining the Sudbury U18 and Reserve sides.

AFC Sudbury Director of Football Danny Laws said: “Kyran has made rapid progress over the last few years and a lot of credit must go to the staff within the AFC Sudbury Academy for his development, in particular David Cannon and Louis Johnson who have mentored him closely, he is a great lad who works hard and I wish him all the best.”
