MARCUS Dinanga has signed an improved contract with Burton Albion Football Club which will see him stay until June 2018, with the club holding an option to extend his deal by another year.
20-year-old Dinanga signed his first professional contract with Burton Albion last summer and spent the duration of the 2016/17 season on loan at Matlock Town where he scored over 30 goals for the Gladiators.
The forward has netted five goals so far this pre-season. He scored three in his first three games as well as his brace against Arnold Town in a 9-0 victory for the Brewers.
Dinanga said: "It's always good to get another contract and keep on developing as a player, especially at Burton Albion.
"Obviously with Nigel Clough giving me another contract you can see that he's got a plan for the future and hopefully I get a chance this year or next.
"If I go out on loan again hopefully I can score goals at a higher level (than Matlock) to prove myself and show that there wasn't any luck involved and hopefully come back and have a shot at the first team."
