BURTON Albion are delighted to announce that left-back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will become a Brewers player when his contract at Oldham Athletic expires at the end of the month.
The 24-year-old will sign a two-year contract to become the first signing made by manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink this summer.
Borthwick-Jackson began his career with Manchester United and made 14 appearances for the Red Devils, including 10 Premier League games and winning their Young Player of the Year award, while spending spells out on loan at Wolves, Leeds United, Scunthorpe United and Tranmere Rovers.
His final loan spell came at Oldham, for whom he signed on a permanent basis in August 2020 after leaving Old Trafford.
Borthwick-Jackson, who can play across the left of the defence, scored twice in 31 league games for the Latics last term and has represented England at youth level up to the U20s.
He played under assistant manager Dino Maamria at Oldham, as well as alongside Tom Hamer and Jonny Smith at Boundary Park, and knows goalkeeper Kieran O'Hara well from their time at United together.
"It was a no-brainer when I heard there was interest (from Burton Albion)," said Borthwick-Jackson.
"I know Dino and I know his feelings on me as a player, so that was one of the reasons I came here. The manager is a legend in his own right so I met with them, their thoughts were the same as mine.
"I just want to prove myself this season, push on and help the club."
Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is pleased to get Borthwick-Jackson in and feels he will be a real asset to the club.
"We're very happy to sign Cameron," said Hasselbaink.
"We have no left-backs in the building currently, and we needed to get one in. He has big potential, if we can get it right with him, and it's a very exciting signing for us."
Welcome to Burton Albion, Cameron!
