BILLY Bodin has joined Burton Albion following his release this summer from Oxford United.

The 32-year-old attacker has signed a two-year deal with the Brewers, who finished 20th in Sky Bet League One during the 2023/24 campaign.

Bodin confirmed his exit from the U’s in May, ahead of his contract expiring.

He netted 25 goals in 107 games during a three-year spell with United, having joined as a free agent from Preston North End.

Bodin scored nine goals in 41 games as the U’s won promotion last time out, with his last strike being the audacious lob in the 5-0 victory against Peterborough United in April, an effort that was shortlisted for the League One goal of the month.

After joining the Brewers, he told the club website: “I’m really excited. I spoke to the manager about the plans going forward and the way he wants to play and ultimately that’s why I’ve decided to come here.

“I still feel that I’ve got plenty to offer at League One level and hope that I can also add some experience to the squad to help benefit the younger players.

“I spoke to Steve Seddon and Ryan Sweeney, and they had great things to say about the club and everything that is going on, so after speaking to them it was a pretty easy decision to join the club.”

Brewers sporting director Bendik Hareide added: “We are delighted to welcome Billy Bodin to Burton Albion.

“He will bring a wealth of experiences from both the Championship and League One, which will be a great asset to our squad. 

“His knowledge of the game and proven ability at these levels will help to strengthen our team.”
