Dan Burn

Dan Burn joined Albion on a four-year deal from Wigan Athletic in August 2018.

The 28-year-old was sent back to Wigan on loan until the 2019 January transfer window.

The 6ft 7in defender began his career in Newcastle United’s academy, but dropped into non-league football to begin his senior career.

An impressive two-year spell at Darlington led to a move to Fulham, then in the Premier League. His time there saw him play 69 times for the Cottagers and also included loan moves to Yeovil and Birmingham City, enjoying promotion from League One to the Championship with the Glovers.

He moved to Wigan in 2016 and was a regular for the Latics, where he caught Albion's attention.

He made his Seagulls debut in the goalless draw with West Bromwich Albion in an Emirates FA Cup fourth round tie.

Under Graham Potter, Burn has been utilised predominantly at left-wing back, making 66 Premier League appearances for Albion in Potter's first two years in charge at the Amex.

The defender's adaptability has also seen him play at centre-back as part of a back three.
