Fulham Wrap Up Deal For Darlington’s Burn

Fulham have confirmed that they have completed the signing of Darlington defender Dan Burn on a three-year deal.

The 18-year-old will join Mark Hughes’ squad in the summer for an undisclosed fee, with further add-ons if he progresses in Fulham’s first-team.

Burn joins the Cottagers after making 14 appearances for Darlington’s first-team over the past two seasons, 10 of which have come this term since January.

In that time the 6ft 6in centre-back has played a key role in helping Darlington reach the FA Trophy final in which they will face Mansfield Town in May.

Quakers chairman Raj Singh commented on the deal to sell Burn on the club’s website, he said:

“This represents a fantastic bit of business for Darlington and we’re delighted for Dan that he’s joining a top, Premier League club.”

“Mark Cooper wanted to make sure Dan joined the right club and he kept me informed of all enquiries, ensuring we got the best possible deal while also looking after the player, so he deserves a lot of credit for that.”

“I’d also like to thank Dan’s parents for the way they’ve handled themselves. They allowed us to handle the deal without getting involved and trusted us to make sure it was right for both the club and the player.”

“Dan will join Fulham at the end of the season and, naturally, we wish him our luck in what we hope and believe is the beginning of a very successful career”, he added.
