Biography

The towering centre-back joined the Club in the summer of 2011 from Conference side Darlington.

Comfortable on the ball and a threat from set-pieces, the player is more than just an accomplished stopper, possessing a mature reading of play and excellent distribution.

In working his way up from non-League, and in sharing a variety of on-field attributes, comparisons with Chris Smalling are perhaps more fitting. The Club are certainly hopeful that the player can follow a similar path.

Spent the majority of the 2012/13 season on loan at League One side Yeovil Town. He went on to play an integral role as they reached the Play-Off Final, scoring what proved to be the winner at Wembley as Yeovil defeated Brentford 2-1 to clinch promotion.

Burn’s performances did not go unnoticed and on 3rd July 2013, he was rewarded with a new two-year contract at Fulham, with the option of a further 12 months – a deal that potentially keeps the centre-back at Craven Cottage until the summer of 2016.

On the same day, it was announced that the affable Burn would be joining up with former Fulham Captain Lee Clark at Birmingham City, joining the Midlands club on a season-long loan deal.

However, the Whites recalled the towering starlet from his loan in early January 2014 and, after making his debut in an FA Cup with Budweiser Third Round tie at Norwich City, he featured heavily for Fulham over the remainder of the season, making nine league appearances in total.
