Crystal Palace midfielder Jordon Mutch is set to sign for Burton Albion.

Mutch joined the Eagles in 2015, but spent the second half of last season on loan with Reading in the Championship.

Now, Burton are lining up a move for the former Cardiff man, who is surplus to requirements at Selhurst Park.

The Daily Mail says it is unclear at this time if Mutch, 23, will join on a permanent or loan deal. He has two years left on his Palace contract.

Burton view Mutch as the perfect replacement for Jackson Irvine, who signed for Hull in a £2m deal earlier this week.

Irvine scored 10 goals for the Brewers as they avoided the drop last season.
