Class of Burn has attracted interest
Dan Burn’s performances for Yeovil Town while on loan from Fulham have caught the eye of an unknown npower Championship club.
The centre-half has been ever-present in the Glovers’ climb to the League One play-off zone since arriving from Craven Cottage back in September.
Blyth-born Burn has scored twice in 30 appearances, with his current agreement keeping him in Somerset until his 21st birthday in May.
However, it is believed that this has not stopped clubs from the second tier of English football tracking the progress of the giant left-footer known as ‘Baby Brede Hangeland’ at the London club.

It us understood that scouts from a Championship club were at Huish Park last Saturday watching Burn contribute to the 12th Yeovil clean-sheet he has played in during this campaign.
Ed Upson’s free-kick proved the difference against Tranmere Rovers as captain Jamie McAllister and striker James Hayter returned from injuries to take part in Town’s 1-0 triumph.
On their successful fight for fitness, manager Gary Johnson said: “Their faces weren’t too happy at 2pm when they had a six-inch needle going into their feet.
“But they’re both proper blokes and both proper, experienced players. They both had to have an injection and they took it well.
“We made sure there was no structural damage and they both had MRI scans. The doctor told us that at the end of the day it’s the pain threshold, give them a little jab and they will be OK. He was spot-on and dead right.
“Both played a major part because we needed 11 blokes out there to play Tranmere, because they [Rovers] are a big old group and have got a little bit of experience as well.
“It was just right, and they both played a massive part in the win.”
While the Glovers will be keen to keep hold of Burn, they have decided they can do without another loan signing. Kwesi Appiah was not picked to face Tranmere, and the striker returned to Championship club Crystal Palace at the weekend.
“Kwesi is going back,” Johnson confirmed. “We’ve brought in [on-loan Burnley striker] Wes Fletcher and it wouldn’t be fair to keep Kwesi here and not play him.
“Crystal Palace wanted him playing games, and he was unlucky that we had the eight wins and obviously couldn’t use him or play him.
“He understands that and we could re-visit it at a later date, but at the moment he needs to play games and he won’t be in my first two [up front].”
