Defender Tom Parkes has rejoined Burton on a six-month loan deal from Leicester.
Centre-back Parkes, 19, returns to the Pirelli Stadium on loan for the third time.
He has made 27 appearances for the Brewers during spells in 2010 and at the end of last season.
Burton manager Paul Peschisolido said: "I'm really happy to be able to bring Tom back in.
"He adds more depth to our defensive options and is a quality player, especially when you consider how young he still is.
"He knows the club and most of the lads here know him already as well so I'm delighted to have him on loan again for an initial six months."
