Albion have signed Luke Murphy on a season-long loan deal from Leeds United after his impressive performances at the Pirelli Stadium last term.
Murphy joined the Brewers in January and put in a series of commanding performances towards the latter part of Albion’s Championship survival push, and has signed up for the challenge once more.
"I think it’s well-known that I really enjoyed my time here last year," Murphy said.
"Everyone was brilliant with me. The staff, the fans and the players everyone was fantastic so that made it more of an easier decision to come back."
SportMail understands that the Brewers have received no bids from Brighton and Hove Albion for star midfielder Jackson Irvine.
Reports surfaced over the weekend suggesting that the Premier League newcomers were interested in acquiring the services of Albion’s 10-goal man, but we can confirm that no such bids have been forthcoming.
