STEPHEN Quinn has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Pirelli Stadium until the end of the 2019/2020 season.
The 32-year old Republic of Ireland international originally joined the Brewers in August 2018 on a short-term contract until this month.
A former Sheffield United youth team player, Quinn went on to play more than 200 league games for The Blades in the top two divisions of English football.
A three-year spell at Hull City followed before Quinn joined and played for Reading over a similar period, leaving The Royals at the end of the 2017/18 season.
He has made more than 20 starts for the Brewers this season and has been an integral part of a strong midfield trio alongside Scott Fraser and Jamie Allen.
Nigel Clough said: “It’s brilliant news. Since he has come to train with us and then got in the team, he has been a huge influence and complements our other two midfielders and we are delighted he has committed himself to another 18 months.”
Quinn has made the holding role of the Brewers midfield three his own this season.
Clough said: “His experience allows him to get on the ball and dictate things for us and that’s the best way to utilise him. We believe that good players can always play with other good players and that’s the way it works with him and Jamie Allen and Scott Fraser. They are still improving but the three in there as good as we can get.
“Stephen is an international player who has played at the highest level in this country and he’s a good positive influence on the young players on and off the pitch.”
Stephen Quinn said: “It’s good to get it over the line. I have really enjoyed my time here and the football we are playing so I’m very happy and pleased to get it signed and to continue my career with Burton Albion.
“I love playing with Scott and Jamie who are really talented boys with great futures in the game. It’s nice to pick up the ball, give it to them and watch them attack and get in the box and score the goals. I’m really excited for the future.”
