Burton bring in Birmingham keeper

Burton Albion have signed Birmingham City keeper Artur Krysiak on loan.

Polish Under-19 international Krysiak, who turned 20 on Tuesday, has joined the Brewers for a month but hopes a longer-term deal can be arranged.

Krysiak told BBC Radio Derby: "I am very pleased; I have heard very good things about the club and it will be good opportunity.

"I would take all opportunities to play so if I have a chance to be here a bit longer than a month I will take it."

Krysiak has struggled to secure first-team football with Birmingham and has spent time on loan with Gretna, Motherwell, Swansea and York.

But he is eager to make an impact in England and has no regrets about leaving Poland at such a young age.

He said: "When I came to England I was only 16 and that was tough time because I didn't speak English at all.

"But this is the best league in the world."
