Jamie became the final Burton signing of the summer when he put pen to paper on a three-year deal after leaving boyhood club Rochdale for an undisclosed fee.

Having originally joined Dale at the age of eight his move to the Pirelli Stadium signalled the end of a fifteen-year spell with the Spotland club after coming through all the junior ranks to cement his place as a regular first team player and becoming one of the club's youngest captains having taken on the armband during 2015.

Jamie's talents were quickly recognised by the Rochdale management and he was nominated for League 2's Apprentice Of The Year award in 2013 just prior to signing his first professional deal with the club. His professional debut quickly followed against Port Vale in the Football League Trophy and his Football League debut was not far behind against Newport County where he almost scored his maiden senior goal.

His first season was capped with promotion to League One and over the following three seasons Jamie more than played his part in Dale consolidating their place in the third tier.

Over his time at Rochdale Jamie played just under 150 times scoring 11 times and is now looking to establish himself in the Championship having followed team mate Matty Lund from Spotland over the summer.
