CAMERON Borthwick-Jackson has joined the growing former Latics contingent at Burton Albion.

The left back has signed for the Brewers on a two-year deal with his Oldham contract coming to an end this summer.

The former Manchester United youngster will join former boss Dino Maamria, assistant to Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at the League One side, as well as one-time Boundary Park team-mates Tom Hamer and Jonny Smith at the Pirelli Stadium.

"It was a no-brainer when I heard there was interest," Borthwick-Jackson told his new club's website.

"I know Dino and I know his feelings on me as a player, so that was one of the reasons I came here.

"The manager is a legend in his own right so I met with them, their thoughts were the same as mine.

"I just want to prove myself this season, push on and help the club."

The 24-year-old initially joined Latics on loan at the end of the ultimately curtailed 2019-20 season.

He then signed a one-year contract to make the move permanent and made 41 appearances in all for Oldham, scoring two goals.

Borthwick-Jackson, a one-time England youth international, had made 14 United appearances before departing to join Latics.

He also had loan spells with Wolves, Leeds United, Scunthorpe United and Tranmere Rovers during his time at Old Trafford.

His new boss Hasselbaink said: "We're very happy to sign Cameron.

"We have no left-backs in the building currently, and we needed to get one in.

"He has big potential, if we can get it right with him, and it's a very exciting signing for us."

Hasselbaink and Maamria oversaw a remarkable turnaround after taking over in January, steering the Brewers away from real relegation trouble to finish 16th in the third tier.

Borthwick-Jackson is the second one of Latics' released players to have got fixed up with a new club, Gary Woods having signed a pre-contract agreement with Aberdeen where he has been on loan.

Laurence Bilboe, Sido Jombati, Brice Ntambwe and Marcus Barnes were the other players let go at the end of their contracts.
