Burton Albion leading chase to sign Crystal Palace midfielder as January window opens



Championship strugglers Burton Albion want to sign Crystal Palace midfielder Jordan Mutch, according to a report in the Sun, Monday 1st January, print edition.

The out of favour midfielder, who can also play as part of the front three if needed, is wanted by Brewers manager Nigel Clough as he seeks to add some quality to his ranks in January and pull off another escape from relegation this term.

Mutch, who has had spells with Cardiff City and QPR, spent part of last season on loan in the Championship with Reading after failing to impress for the Eagles since securing a move in 2015 from QPR.

He has gone on to make just over 30 appearances in those two years with the club, but he will regard his time at Selhurst Park as a massive disappointment, and he could well relish the chance to make the move to the Championship and help out Nigel Clough’s men.

Burton have struggled for points and consistent form this season but remain in with a shout of survival with the bottom six of the Championship seperated by only four points.

Burton fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know!
