LEAGUE ONE side Burton Albion have won the race for Grays Athletic’s highly-rated midfielder Nathan Ferguson.

The 20-year-old has caught the eye of many Football League clubs this season with his performances for Grays in the Ryman Premier.

The former Dagenham & Redbridge youngster has been snapped up by the League One high-flyers after a week’s trial, signing a two-and-a-half year deal.

Brewers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink could be on the verge of a move to Queens Park Rangers but Ferguson thinks Burton are the best choice to further his career.

The box-to-box midfielder told the Burton website: “I came in for a week to train and I really liked the atmosphere and all the lads made me feel very welcome. I was very keen to come here and work with the squad at Burton.

“It’s a great place to train (St George’s Park) and having those kind of facilities is another bonus. I had never seen St George’s Park before I came here and I was really happy with that.”
