Mason Bennett joins Burton Albion on loan

Derby County’s forward Mason Bennett has joined Burton Albion on loan for the rest of the season.

Bennett did not play any first team games for Derby this term, but has scored four goals in 14 games for their Under-21’s team.

The 19-year-old is now reunited with former Derby manager Nigel Cough. Cough gave Bennett his debut in 2011 which made him the clubs youngest first-team player at just 15-years-old.

Bennett told BBC Sport: “It’s a great opportunity for me to be here,” while speaking about his joining for Burton Albion.

“I know the staff here well. They gave me my debut at 15 so hopefully I’ll have more success here with them.”
