A central defender who is commanding in the air and strong on the ground. Ryan was the captain of the Academy side that reached both the finals of the FA Youth Cup and the Academy National League in the 2011-12 season.
Strong displays all year impressed many and that enabled Ryan to clinch a loan move to League Two side Rochdale for the first half of the 2012-13 campaign. He followed that up with a loan move to Fleetwood Town for the second half of the season.
The start of the 2013-14 season saw the defender join Chesterfield on loan before returning to Rovers at the end of October. By the close of the loan window in November he had joined Tranmere Rovers on a month-long deal.
