DONE DEAL: Burton Albion re-sign Leicester defender Sam Hughes

Burton Albion have re-signed defender Sam Hughes from Premier League neighbours Leicester City.

Hughes, 24, signed by the Foxes for a reported £125,000 fee from non-league Chester in 2017, was already back with Burton on his second loan spell.

He has made four first-team appearances for the Brewers since returning this month from a year-long ACL injury.

Brewers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink also re-signed midfielder Harry Chapman from Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

He then succeeded with a late move for Bournemouth striker Christian Saydee for the rest of the season.

Manchester United's 21-year-old Czech keeper Matej Kovar then also completed a late loan move.
