NIGEL Clough will be looking to extend Stephen Quinn’s deal with the club if the midfielder continues to build up his fitness and influence on the games.
The Irishman has signed a deal until January but the Brewers manager has already seen signs that the player can be a major asset and is thinking already about an extension.
Clough said: ”It was a technical thing that we couldn’t do it until the end of the season but we will be certainly talking to him over the next few weeks.
“There was always a little bit of a question mark over his knee and that’s the only thing we were worried about and he completely understood that. But now he’s proven his fitness and that’s all OK I don’t see any reason why we can’t have a chat with him and see if we can extend it already.
“He has still only played a few games, but he managed 90 minutes on Saturday.
“We want him to use his experience a bit more and do less work. We want him to stay in the middle of the pitch and influence it from there. He has been an energetic player in the past but he has to change now and he can save his legs.”
