After a successful first season with the club Ben put pen to paper on a new two-year contract with the club in the summer of 2017 having made 39 appearances in his debut season at the Pirelli Stadium after an injury-hit couple of years with former club Cardiff City.

Ben originally came through the academy at Coventry City and made his debut for the Sky Blues as an 18-year-old against Stoke City. Spells on loan with Peterborough United and Oldham Athletic provided the necessary experience for Ben to establish himself as a regular at Coventry making 84 appearances and scoring four times for the club.

His performances earned a £750,000 move to Cardiff and whilst there was a key part of the side that reached the final of the League Cup, scoring against Liverpool at Wembley and also helping the club to promotion to the Premier League and playing 31 times for the Bluebirds in the top flight.

After missing most of the 2014/15 season with an ankle problem he completed his recover towards the end of the 15/16 season with a loan spell back at Coventry City helping him prove his fitness.

After being released by Cardiff Ben was quickly snapped up by Brewers boss Nigel Clough who made him his first signing ahead of Albion's first season in the Championship on an initial one-year deal and having proved that his injury problems are behind him was a key member of the side to commit his future to the club once more.
