Lorent Tolaj has joined League Two side Salford City on loan for the rest of the 2022/23 season.

The 20-year-old Swiss striker returns to the EFL having spent the second half of last season on loan at League One side Cambridge United, where he made five appearances.

Loans manager Gordon Greer said, “This is a good move for Lorent. It’s an opportunity for him to gain some first-team experience in the Football League, and hopefully play regularly at a good level.

“We’re looking forward to following his progress. As with all our loans, we’ll be in regular contact with Lorent during his time at Salford and we hope he does well there.”

Tolaj joined Albion in 2018 from Swiss side FC Sion, and has represented Switzerland at under-17, under-18 and under-19 level.
