Jack Armer says he "pushed" for the deal to leave Carlisle United for Burton Albion from day one.

The defender has left the Cumbrians for the League One Brewers on a two-year contract.

Armer, speaking on his new club's website, said he always wanted the move to happen.

"Once I heard about the interest from Burton, I have pushed to get it done ever since," said the former Preston North End man.

"I think there is endless opportunity here with the training facilities and the signings that have been made.

"I know a couple of the lads already and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.  

"I'm delighted to be here and excited to get going now."

Burton's new sporting director Bendik Hareide has also welcomed the move for the 23-year-old.

He said: “We are very pleased to welcome Jack Armer. He is a talented left-back with great potential and a strong defensive skill set.

“His experience at Carlisle has shown his ability to perform consistently and effectively. We are excited to have him join our squad and look forward to seeing his contributions on the pitch.”
