Burton captain Jake Buxton has signed a new one-year deal to remain with the League One club.

Centre-back Buxton first joined Burton in 2008 when the club was in non-league and had spells at Derby and Wigan before returning to the Brewers at the start of the 2017/18 season.

"We will need all his experience next season," boss Nigel Clough said.external-link
