BURTON Albion have signed midfielder Scott Fraser on a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old has come through the ranks at Dundee United and has played for the club in the Scottish Premiership and Championship.

It’s the third time that the Brewers have looked north of the border for a summer signing after bringing in Jackson Irvine and Liam Boyce over the last two years.

Fraser was out of contract at Dundee United this summer and the Brewers have moved quickly to secure his signature.

Manager Nigel Clough said: “Scott is a young, attacking midfielder who we feel has got potential to improve. 

“He can play in a few different positions and is very keen to come down to England to make his mark. 

The Scottish market remains a good option for us as we look to build a team for League One.”

Fraser said: “I’m very happy to be here. I think it’s the right move for me. When I found out what clubs might be interested this was the best feel I got and having spoken to the manager and coming down to see the ground and training facilities I think it’s a club where I can get better as a player.

“I’m an attacking player who likes to get on the ball whether that’s midfield or more of an attacking position. I like to create chances and assists for my team-mates but I want to add more goals too.

“I was coming to the end of my contract and was speaking about a new one, but I just felt a change was needed to move away, grow up and try and improve as a player. And everything about this move felt right.”
