Chris Hussey: Joins Burton on a free transfer

Hussey, who becomes Albion's fourth new arrival this summer, was released by the Dons at the end of last season.

It was the 24-year-old's second stint with the London club, having been signed from there by Coventry in 2009.

He played 65 games in the Championship and League One during a four-year spell with the Sky Blues.

Hussey's arrival signals the possibility of a new role for last season's established left-back Damien McCrory.

"I see Chris predominantly as a left-back and that may mean that I'm toying with the idea of playing Damo one further forward," said Burton boss Gary Rowett.

"But at the same time, I think Chris can play the forward role as well and, in any case, ideally, you want competition for every position.

"He is equally comfortable going forward and defending, so I think we have a really good player on our hands. He has undoubted quality and, like a lot of our others, he's at the right age to go again, I hope."

Albion are due to travel to Spain for a pre-season training camp and Rowett hopes to tie up at least two more signings before they depart on Sunday.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
