Newcastle United: Keith Downie says Dan Burn is ‘popular’ in the dressing room

Newcastle United: Keith Downie says Dan Burn is ‘popular’ in the dressing room -Newcastle United News

Sky Sports’ northeast reporter Keith Downie says that Dan Burn is a ‘very popular’ figure in the Newcastle United dressing room.

The Lowdown: January arrival

The 30-year-old was signed from Brighton and Hove Albion in the January transfer window and has played 24 games so far for the St James’ Park club, supplying one assist (Transfermarkt).

The defender has only missed one match in the Premier League when he has been available, so he is clearly a favourite of Eddie Howe.

The Latest: ‘Popular’ figure

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Downie has said that Burn is ‘very popular’ in the dressing room at Newcastle, adding that all of his team-mates ‘look up’ to him.

The Sky Sports man stated: “You have to say, Dan Burn, since he arrived in January, has not put a foot wrong. A very popular guy in the dressing room.

“All the sort of foreign lads and younger lads, I think they all look up to him and what he’s done in his career. He’s not going to give that place up lightly.”

The Verdict: Underrated signing

Given the big-money signings of the likes of Alexander Isak, Bruno Guimaraes and Sven Botman over the past few months, Burn’s arrival may have gone slightly under the radar.

The 30-year-old is currently limiting Botman’s appearances in the starting line-up, which is a testament to how highly he is regarded by his manager and how well he is performing.

Nonetheless, the fact that Burn has seemingly built a strong relationship with his team-mates already shows that he is exactly the kind of character which is needed in the St James’ Park dressing room, and he looks set to have a great career at the Magpies with the way that he has settled in on Tyneside.
