Pickford played three matches in all competitions for the Brewers before a minor knee injury resulted in a recall to the Barclays Premier League club.

The 19-year-old has recovered from the problem and has spent the last week training with the Black Cats' first team.

"Jordan impressed us during his brief time with us and we are delighted to have him back; whilst in his absence it has been pleasing to see Dean Lyness get a run of games under his belt and he has done very well," said Burton boss Gary Rowett.

"It was always our intention to bring Jordan back to the club after his initial spell was cut short and we believe he will improve our squad."

Pickford will be available for selection on Saturday when Burton host Portsmouth in League Two.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
