Burton Albion should look to loan in this PL striker after missing out on Woodrow



Burton Albion have recently missed out on the chance to re-sign former loan star Cauley Woodrow on another temporary deal, The Burton Mail has reported.

This is the second striker blow that the Brewers have recently suffered after learning that record signing Liam Boyce – who finished as the top scorer in the Scottish Premiership last season – is set to miss the vast majority of the season with a serious injury.

Boyce’s absence has Nigel Clough’s transfer window priorities very clear: Burton Albion need a new striker as soon as possible!

Their current options up top are Lucas Akins (who normally plays on the wing), Marvin Sordell and Luke Varney.

None of these strikers are going to grab fifteen to twenty goals for Burton and fire them to safety and they cannot rely on Jackson Irvine again.

As a result, Clough will have to move quickly to sign a striker after missing out on Cauley Woodrow.

Burton Albion should consider a loan swoop for Dan Agyei of Burnley.

The 20-year-old has raw talent, pace and strength but needs a bit more playing time in the lower leagues so that he can learn to use his strength and not get knocked off the ball so easily.

During his loan spell at Coventry last year, Agyei netted a respectable five goals in 19 games for the struggling Sky Blues.

While he did not set the world alight, the former AFC Wimbledon striker showed glimpses of the potential he possesses.

A loan spell in the Championship could do the youngster good and Burton could be the short-term beneficiaries of that.
