JOHN Mousinho has signed a new one-year deal with the Brewers.
The defender has captained the club in three divisions and has played a major part in the recent Burton Albion success story which has included two promotions.
Mousinho, 31, made 32 Championship appearances last season.
At the end of the campaign he expressed his desire to secure a new deal and that has now been agreed.
He said: "First of all it was very pleasing to keep the club in the Championship and a great achievement for all the boys but once that happened the priority for me was to sign again. I'm massively happy as I have said along that is what I wanted and when the manager called me into his office and said he wanted me to stay it was an easy decision.
"The manager will be looking to add players to the squad here and there but I'm sure if we can keep the base of the team that has done so well we will be set up nicely for next season.
"The Championship was a bit of an unknown for me and you never know how you are going to adjust and adapt. Now I feel in a lot better place with that season under my belt and that experience to call upon."
