Burton Albion have bolstered their defensive options with the signing of Aaron Brown.
The former Reading central defender has been training with The Brewers since August.
Now the 26-year-old has been handed a short-term deal with a view to earning a longer contract.
"I am really happy. The gaffer has been great to me since I've been here and I am confident I can do well," said Brown.
"There's a great bunch of lads here and you can see the confidence in the players. They all want to do well and that comes from the gaffer."
