Jackson Irvine joined the Tigers from Burton Albion for an undisclosed fee during the 2017 summer transfer window, with the midfielder signing a three-year deal.

An Australian international, Irvine made the move over to British football in 2010 when joining Celtic’s youth set-up where he captained their U19 and U20 sides.

A senior debut came during the 2012/13 season, but no more followed and he was allowed to move out on loan to Kilmarnock and then Ross County. His performances for County persuaded them to make a permanent move for the midfielder in the summer of 2015 and he soon caught the attention of clubs south of the border with Burton Albion making their move 12 months later.

11 goals in 49 appearances for the Brewers brought further interest, with the Tigers winning the race to land his signature in August 2017.

On the international front, Irvine made his senior debut for Australia in October 2013 and remains a regular in the Socceroos’ squad.
