The man in question is a left-sided centre-half that Rowett watched in a training game on Monday.

He hopes a deal can be pushed through quickly, with Burton in need of reinforcements.

With Rory Delap nursing a hamstring complaint and Ian Sharps and Marcus Holness suspended, Rowett is eager to get bodies on board ahead of Saturday's home date with Scunthorpe United.

He told the Burton Mail: "It's a player we've been watching for quite a while.

"He's an experienced player, in League One at the moment.

"If he does well, we might bring him in.

"We've been looking at left-sided defenders as it's something we feel we're missing and now is the perfect time to do that."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
