Ben Turner: Burton target

Burton Albion are lining up a move for former Cardiff City defender Ben Turner, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Turner, 28, is a free agent after leaving Cardiff earlier this summer, following a five-year spell at the Welsh club.

A number of Championship clubs are understood to have expressed an interest in Turner, but Burton are hoping to win the race for his signature.

Burton, who are preparing for their first campaign in the Championship, see Turner’s experience and pedigreee as a key addition to their plans for next season.

Burton boss Nigel Clough is keen to bring in proven Championship performers to aid his side’s bid to survive next season and landing Turner would be something of a coup for the Brewers.

Turner was an integral member of the Cardiff side that won promotion to the Premier League in 2013 and he also scored in the League Cup final defeat to Liverpool in 2012.
