George Taft: Burton Albion sign defender as Hussey exits

George Taft

Burton Albion have signed former Leicester City centre-half George Taft on a two-year deal and have agreed to part company with Chris Hussey.

The deal was triggered by an appearance clause but the club and player have now decided to cancel it.

Taft, who is 6ft 5ins tall, was a Foxes youth graduate but never played in the first team and spent time on loan with York last season.

Brewers boss Gary Rowett said: "George brings a lot of height, something that we probably lacked a bit last season.

"We're confident he can give us something a bit different next season."
