MARVIN Sordell has signed a new three-year deal with Burton Albion.
The striker initially joined the Brewers from Coventry City in January until the end of the season. He scored four goals and made an important contribution in keeping Nigel Clough’s team in the Championship
Now, the 26-year-old former Watford and Bolton striker has committed his future to the Brewers.
Sordell said: “I’m delighted to have that security. I scored a few goals and helped the team stay up and that was a fantastic achievement for everyone at the club and hopefully we can kick on from that now as well.
“It will be good now to get a full pre-season and start the new season quite strongly which will be very helpful for us as well. The minimum we want to achieve is to stay up again but we want to be improving and pushing on as much as possible.”
Nigel Clough said: “The second half of the season he was a major reason in us staying up. The quality and consistency of his performances was excellent. We hope he will take it on again next season. He made a big impact when he came in in January so were delight he will be with us for a few more seasons.
“When he’s played in that league above in the Premier League we think he’s got the confidence in his ability and we’ve certainly got it. Hopefully he will get a few more goals for us and have another good season. His versatility as well as the fact that he can play down the right-hand side like he did for us a number of times.”
