Dan Burn

Position:
Defender
Date signed:
31st January 2022

Boyhood Magpies supporter Burn returned home to join Newcastle United from Brighton in January 2022.

The towering defender, who was originally part of United's youth set-up before being released aged 11, returned to the club almost two decades later having become an established Premier League defender.

Burn began his ascent into the professional game with spells at clubs including Blyth Spartans and Darlington, making his Football League debut for the Quakers in 2009. A series of impressive performances led to interest from a number of top-flight clubs, and Burn was signed by Fulham in summer 2011.

He joined Yeovil Town on loan a year later, playing a key role as the club sealed promotion to the Championship for the first time in its history, before continuing his development with a loan spell at Birmingham City during the first half of the 2013/14 season.

Following the expiry of his Fulham contract, Burn joined Wigan Athletic, earning the club's player of the year award during the first of his two seasons with the club.

Despite moving to Brighton & Hove Albion in August 2018, he began the 2018/19 back at the DW Stadium on loan and it was during the 2019/20 season that Burn began to make a significant impact at the Seagulls, becoming a mainstay in the club's backline with his 6ft 7ins frame effective at both ends of the pitch.

After joining the Magpies, Burn helped lift United to safety in 2022 before excelling at left back as Eddie Howe's side finished fourth in 2022/23 to qualify for the Champions League.

He also helped the club reach their first major cup final in 24 years as the Magpies made it to Wembley for the 2023 Carabao Cup final - with Burn scoring his first goal for the club in the quarter-final win over Leicester City at St. James' Park.
