KIERAN signed a two-year deal with the Brewers in September 2020 after a successful season-long loan spell from Manchester United in 2019-20.
Having joined United as a schoolboy from Urmston Town, Kieran signed a professional contract at Old Trafford in 2014 after two years in the academy.
His first experience of senior football came via a work experience loan at Trafford FC which led to further spells in the National League and League Two with AFC Fylde, Morecambe (twice) and Stockport County before a breakthrough season in 2018-19 saw Kieran play a significant role in keeping Macclesfield Town in League Two playing 42 times as the Silkmen escaped relegation.
That spell caught the eye of numerous EFL clubs leading to his arrival at the Pirelli Stadium.
While with the Brewers Kieran has won two full caps for the Republic of Ireland, both appearances coming during the 2019-20 campaign.
