Manager Mark Yates will hope to include him in the side and has requested international clearance.The 23-year-old was on trial with the club and made appearances in the pre-season wins against Reading and Nuneaton. Bryan has played most of his football in his native Belgium, where he has played for Cappellen, FC Heist and Antwerp most recently.

Yates was delighted with the signing, he told the Crawley official website, “Bryan did well in both games and showed his commitment by driving five hours just to get here to play against Reading.

“It’s a position in the team we have been looking at and this is an opportunity for Bryan to impress us further.”
