Norwich City keeper Remi Matthews has re-joined League One new boys Burton on loan until January 2.

The 21-year-old Gorleston-born stopper spent a month with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's squad last season as cover, but failed to make a senior appearance for the club who won promotion from League Two.

Matthews has been a part of the Canaries' youth set up since the age of 10 and signed a new two-year deal with the Canaries in the summer of 2014.

He was originally targeted by the Brewers last season to provide back up for Jon McLaughlin, with Dean Lyness still recovering from a broken leg.

Lyness made his return to action after a nine-month lay-off in Burton's opening pre-season friendly 5-1 win against Gresley FC.
