The Northern Ireland U21 stopper has played for the Blues in a pre-season game and has made the move to North Wales following the Clarets signing of Adam Legzdins.

Mitchell, who initially joined the Clarets on a youth team scholarship in 2012, made his first senior outing for the Clarets in the 2016 pre-season at Bradford City.

The 21-year-old has previously enjoyed loan spells at Bradford Park Avenue and Sheffield FC.
