Caltex Socceroo's value soars as Albion ponder deal extension

Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough hopes to tie down goal-scoring sensation Jackson Irvine to a long-term contract amid reports of interest from rivals in the Caltex Socceroo's services.

In his first season at the Championship club, Irvine has been a revelation for the Brewers with a string of superb performances from midfield for the newly-promoted club.

The 23-year-old has scored eight times to be the Championship’s highest-scoring midfielder, while his energy and ability to arrive late into the box has been a feature of his play.
