Championship side Burton Albion are hoping to snap up Rochdale midfielder Matty Lund on a free transfer this summer, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.

Lund, 26, has made 36 appearances for Rochdale in all competitions this season, scoring ten goals along the way.  Rochdale narrowly missed out on a play-off place, ultimately finishing in ninth place in the League One table.  Lund is out of contract this summer and could leave the club on a free transfer.

The midfielder made his international debut this season, playing for Northern Ireland in their 0-3 loss to Croatia in November.

Lund began his career at Crewe Alexandra’s academy but made the move to Stoke City along with Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Ben Marshall in 2009.  He impressed with the reserve team but failed to make a first-team appearance during four years with Stoke.  During this time, he was loaned out five times.

In 2013, Lund signed for Rochdale following his release from Stoke.  He made 45 appearances during his first season with the club, impressing as Rochdale were promoted from League Two.

Lund has been a first-team regular for Rochdale once again this season and the club will not want to lose the midfielder this summer.  However, Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough is hoping to beat rivals to his signature.
