Hakan Hayrettin has added four players to his Braintree Town squad.
Joining the squad is 23-year old defender Ejiro Okosieme, who has joined from fellow National League side Dover Athletic. Okosieme started his career playing for Colchester United’s academy before joining Middlesbrough, where he played for their under-18 and under-21 teams. He also had a brief spell with Macclesfield Town.
Taylor Curran has joined on loan from Southend United. The 19-year old central defender has done well in the Blues’ U18s and U23s and has now signed a two-year professional contract with the Roots Hall club.
The next signing is goalkeeper George Legg on loan from Championship side Reading. Ahead of the current campaign, George was yet to make a debut for the Royals’ senior team, but he had been named on the bench on numerous occasions as cover for the starter. He has, however, regularly featured for the Royals’ Under-23 squad and in our Checkatrade Trophy campaigns and had loans at Hendon, Dunstable, Chesham, Hampton & Richmond, Gosport and Barnet.
The fourth new signing is 20-year-old striker Norman Wabo on loan from Southend United, after signing his first professional contract – a one-year deal with an option for another year. Wabo spent the end of the 2016/17 on loan at Cambridge City in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier League, scoring four goals in five appearances.
