Friday Feelings

Dan Burn interview

Dan Burn spoke to "i" News about Newcastle's crazy season so far - "There I am, a Newcastle United player, working out in the gym with Local Hero playing. I thought ‘I must be dreaming’. It’s been so surreal, the whole thing. I still can’t believe I met Ant and Dec after the Arsenal game. It’s been a strange year but an amazing one. It’s strange how things work out but when I had the first conversation with the gaffer [Howe] before signing, I said I believe I can make a big impact on and off the field.

I back myself against anyone and believe I should be playing at the top level. I used to say to people all the time ‘It just needs someone to come in and connect with the fans and you’ll see what a big club Newcastle is’. I just said ‘Just wait and see’ but I never thought it was going to happen. There is such a buzz about the place now."
