BURTON Albion have got in on the deadline day action by signing West Bromwich Albion midfielder Alex Bradley on-loan until the end of the season.

Bradley, 20, has been capped at under 16s, 17s and 19s level by Finland and spent the first half of this season on-loan at National League Side Havant and Waterlooville. 

During his temporary spell at West Leigh Park, Bradley scored two goals and provided one assist in nine league games.

He has also netted for West Bromwich Albion during his only Checkatrade Trophy appearance this season for the club, when he provided the winner in a 2-1 win at Bloomfield Road back in October.

The youngster has joined Nigel Clough’s side for the remainder of the season, where he becomes the third addition of the January transfer window, along with Josh Clarke and Colin Daniel.

On the signing, manager Nigel Clough said: “He’s a young player who we want to have a look at between now and the end of season. He had a couple of days on trial with us and did well in training so it’s a chance for us to see what he’s like. We like youngsters who want to come out on loan to get a chance to play.” 

On his move, Bradley said: “I am hoping that I will bring a bit of attacking quality going forward. There are very good players here, so it will be hard to get into the team and cement a place but now I am here and the deal is done, hopefully I can score some goals and push us up the table.

“I trained Tuesday and Wednesday, it wasn’t until this morning when West Brom told me about  the interest from Nigel Clough and it has progressed from there and now it has been sorted.”
