DONE DEAL: Ex-Chelsea prospect Maddox joins Burton

Former Chelsea youngster Jacob Maddox has completed a season-long loan move to Burton from Portuguese club Vitoria SC subject to international clearance, the Brewers have announced.

The 22-year-old midfielder, a member of the England Under-19s squad which won the European Championship in 2017 along with then club-mate Mason Mount, trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Thursday and could figure in Saturday's opening pre-season friendly at Bognor Regis.

Maddox, who has represented his country at every level from under-16s to under-20s, began his career at Bristol City.

He joined Chelsea as a 14-year-old and had loan spells with Cheltenham, Tranmere and Southampton before heading for the Primeira Liga in August last year.
