BURTON Albion completed the January transfer deadline day signing of Stevenage defender David Gray on a permanent deal until the end of the season yesterday, subject to paperwork.
The 25-year-old right-back is a product of the Manchester United youth system and has also enjoyed spells at Crewe Alexandra, Plymouth Argyle and Preston North End.
Brewers boss Gary Rowett said: "We have been looking at David for some time and he is a player of real experience and has played a lot of football at a higher level.
"We've been looking to strengthen our defence and to create a bit of competition for Phil Edwards, who has the shirt at the moment in that position.
"David can get forward well but also defend and he will at a bit more depth to our squad.
"He has League One quality just like Gary (striker Gary Alexander) who we brought in earlier."
The timing of Gray's signing means he will be unavailable for today's League Two match against Exeter City at the Pirelli Stadium, kick-off 3pm.
