Burton Albion are set to make a move for Cheltenham Town winger Ryan Broom, according to Gloucester Live.

The 22-year-old’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and he could be set to leave Cheltenham next month for a fee.

League One side Burton are keen to bolster their squad in the January transfer window. Their manager, Nigel Clough, has prioritised bringing in a winger and Broom fits the bill.

Broom only joined the Robins in May and has impressed for the League Two side. He has played 28 games in all competitions for the League Two side, scoring four goals and gaining four assists.

The Wales-born midfielder started his career at Bristol Rovers and rose through the youth ranks at the Memorial Stadium. He made his first-team debut for the Pirates in a League Cup game against Birmingham City in August 2015.

Broom went onto play seven more times for Bristol Rovers and also enjoyed loan stints at non-league sides Bath City and Taunton Town. He spent the latter half of the last campaign at National League outfit Eastleigh before leaving Rovers on a permanent deal to join Cheltenham.

A move up a division to Burton could now be on the cards for Broom. The Brewers were relegated from the Championship last season and are currently 15th in League One. They are looking to climb up the league table and the potential signing of Broom could help them do this.
