Young defender Will Kokolo has joined League One side Burton Albion.

The 21-year-old, who made his first team debut at Luton in November and his first senior start at Mansfield Town in the FA Cup last weekend, joins Albion on a permanent basis.

Kokolo, a regular in our Under-23s, was previously with Sunderland, and came through the youth ranks at Monaco before his switch to the Stadium of Light in 2017.

He was one of several youngsters to join the senior squad for our Emirates FA Cup tie at Brentford in January 2021 before making his full debut in the competition this time around.

Will departs with the best wishes of everyone at MFC.
