Christian Burgess arrived last summer from Peterborough for an undisclosed fee and has been a revelation.
The towering 6’5’’ centre half demonstrates composure and skill on the ball which is uncharacteristic of his build.
Burgess is also a danger from set pieces and is a nightmare to mark.
The 24-year-old had a strange route into football as he was scouted by Middlesbrough whilst captaining the University of Birmingham’s football side.
A first class degree later and Burgess is excelling on the football pitch too and should kick on next year as he enters his prime years.
