Yussuf came through Leicester City's youth academy

Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido has said new striker Adi Yussuf has the raw talent to succeed in League Two.

The 19-year-old was released by Leicester City in May, and the Burton boss added that the Foxes could be a good source for further signings.

Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "Adi needs some work but I've seen enough to suggest he can play at this level.

"They [Leicester] are going for the finished article, and that's why we've got Adi," the Burton boss added.

"He has definite potential. He's a big, strong boy and he's quick.

"Like I say, he does need some work but he'll be a welcome addition to the squad - at training he doesn't look out of place at all."

Burton begin their League Two campaign at Torquay on Saturday.
