BURTON Albion have signed defender Toto Nsiala on a deal until the end of the season.

The experienced centre back has been training with the Brewers for the past fortnight having left Fleetwood Town by mutual consent in November.

The 31-year-old made 76 appearances in all competitions for the Cods after joining from Ipswich Town, scoring one goal against Queens Park Rangers in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

6ft 4inch Toto brings more than 400 professional appearances to the Pirelli Stadium, having started his career at Everton.

Zaire-born, Nsiala is also a Democratic Republic of Congo international and will wear up the number 46 shirt for the rest of the season.

On signing, he said: “I’ve been here for around 2 weeks now and I’ve been keeping fit, so I just want to get back playing.

“It’s an unbelievable dressing room here at Burton, probably one of the best I’ve been in – the lads are great to be around.

“My aim now is to play well, enjoy it, win football matches and help the club climb up the table.”

Brewers manager Martin Paterson, said: “Toto has great experience and has been at the levels. We’ve got suspension and injury concerns at the moment, and he’s been training with us with a view to earning a deal at the club, so the timing is probably perfect now to get him involved.

“He’s a leader and a proper centre half. We believe in him; he’s fit and he’s ready to go.”

Welcome to the Brewers, Toto!
