Swansea City can confirm goalkeeper Josh Gould has joined Ebbsfleet United on loan until January, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old links up with the National League South side, who will start their season with a home fixture against Tonbridge this weekend.

Gould first joined the Swans in 2018 following a successful trial and made an immediate impact on his debut for the under-23s; saving a penalty in their Premier League 2 clash with Derby County at Landore.

The Taunton-born stopper, who also had a brief loan spell with Merthyr Town, played 16 times for the under-23s during the 2019-20 season and, following an injury to Freddie Woodman, was part of the senior matchday squad on five occasions at the back end of the campaign.

He was then given the opportunity to expand on his first-team experience by linking up with Barry Town United on loan for the 2020-21 season, but was recalled from his spell with the Cymru Premier side in January.

Gould’s current contract with the Swans runs until the end of June 2022.
