Burton Albion have signed defender Conor Shaughnessy from Championship side Leeds United on loan until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old has made 15 appearances for Leeds and has also spent time on loan with Hearts and Mansfield.

He joins Nigel Clough's Burton with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

"I really liked what the manager had to say and it seems like a really good set-up here," Shaughnessy said.
