Birmingham City winger Mark Duffy is open to converting his loan switch to Burton Albion into a permanent move.

Duffy joined The Brewers on loan until January in the summer before his stay was extended until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old’s impressive form, with a return of five goals and nine assists in 31 appearances, has helped pushed Burton to the top of League One.

Duffy signed a two-year contract at St Andrew’s in 2014 which expires this summer, when he arrived from Doncaster Rovers.

The former Scunthorpe United wide-man has appeared only seven times in all competitions for Blues, and it looks extremely unlikely that he will add to that tally after expressing an interest to remain at the Pirelli Stadium.

“Obviously it’s down to the management staff (to offer me a deal),” Duffy told the Burton Mail.

“If we go up, it’d be great. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and it’s been brilliant from the first minute of being here.

“The lads are the best group of lads, and the hardest-working, that I’ve ever come across in all my time in football.

“You can only do good things with a group like that.

“If the contract got offered to me, and it was right, I’d definitely sign.”
