Adi Yussuf's raw talent will be enough to see him succeed in League Two, according to Burton boss Paul Peschisolido.

Albion snapped up the 19-year-old, who was released by Leicester in May, on a one-year deal on Tuesday.

"Adi needs some work but I've seen enough to suggest he can play at this level," said Peschisolido.

"They [Leicester] are going for the finished article, and that's why we've got Adi.

"He has definite potential. He's a big, strong boy and he's quick.

"Like I say, he does need some work but he'll be a welcome addition to the squad. At training he doesn't look out of place at all."
