Burton have signed teenage goalkeeper James Wren on a one-year contract.

The former Walsall youngster has been training with Albion since the beginning of the season and featured in a reserve-team fixture against Sheffield United at the start of this month. Wren, 18, feels he has already improved during his time at the Pirelli Stadium and hopes to make his first-team debut for Paul Peschisolido`s side this season.

"There are good people at the club who I can work with - the likes of (goalkeeping coach) Kevin Poole and the gaffer, who is especially good with young lads," he told the club's official website.

"I feel like I've come on straight away since I`ve been here, especially working with someone as experienced as Kevin giving me little tips.

"I am going to try my best to get into the team this year and provide good competition for Ross (Atkins)."
