Gary Rowett: Delighted by early progress

The Brewers have already recruited three players, with Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, George Taft and John Mousinho all moving to the Pirelli Stadium. The League Two club have also agreed a fee with Stevenage for Lucas Akins and are currently trying to sort personal terms with the forward.

Rowett told the club's official website that although there is still much to be done, Burton's early progress is encouraging:

He said: "We're really pleased so far. We've had a list of player we've wanted to bring in and we've spoken about how we can push things forward next season.

"The players that we've brought in are good players and a mix of experience and potential. Shane was an obvious one to bring in and it was a no-brainer if we could do a deal. He was happy to come which tells you how much he's enjoyed it here."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
