Driver heads for Burton

First-year professional Callum Driver has joined League One club Burton Albion on loan until 31 January.

The versatile full-back has been a regular starter for the development squad this season, making 18 appearances for Ian Hendon's side, and has been involved in a number of provisional first-team squads in recent weeks.

The 19-year-old, who joined the club at the age of 12 and signed his first professional contract in July 2011, was travelled to both the home npower Championship game against Barnsley and the New Year's Eve trip to Derby County.

Driver could make his Football League debut for the Brewers in their League Two clash with Accrington Stanley at the Pirelli Stadium on Friday evening. He could also appear in away fixtures at Plymouth Argyle and Bradford City and the home game with Oxford this month.

Driver joins Cristian Montano (Dagenham & Redbridge), Jordan Spence (Bristol City), Peter Kurucz (Rochdale) and Pablo Barrera (Real Zaragoza), while both Herita Ilunga (Doncaster Rovers) and Callum McNaughton (AFC Wimbledon) are back at Chadwell Heath this week.
