Burton Albion have signed Wexford Youths full back Ryan Delaney on a two year deal.
The defender has made 51 appearances for the Youths and scored 2 goals.
There was an undisclosed fee attached with the deal.
Nigel Clough had this to say on the signing “(Ryan) can play left-back or left centre half. He’s only 19 and hasn’t yet played at a decent level but he does a lot of things naturally,” he told the club website.
“He has not been in full-time training which means he’s been blowing a bit in the last 20 minutes of games but we think we can get him up to speed.”
The defender will be a big loss to Shane Keegan as he plots his teams plan to pull away from the relegation zone.
