Musonda has made eight first team appearances for the Hatters
Teenage Hatters defender Frankie Musonda has joined Vanarama National League side Braintree Town on loan for an initial period of one month.
The 19-year-old centre-half will link up with former Town coach Hakan Hayrettin, who took over as manager at the Essex club earlier this season.
Musonda, who skippered the club’s Under-18s to league and cup double success last year as well as reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup, could be in line for his Iron debut when they host Wrexham tomorrow.
Manager Nathan Jones said: “Frankie has been pushing our more experienced centre-halves really hard in training in recent months, as well as learning from each game he played during the Checkatrade Trophy run.
“He’s also come up against some experienced League and Non-League strikers in development matches, and competing on a regular basis against them in competitive football at National League level with Braintree will further his development.”
Musonda has made eight senior appearances since his debut as a substitute at Mansfield in January 2016, with all five this season being starts in the Trophy.
Everyone at Kenilworth Road wishes him well in his spell at Cressing Road!
