Dan Burn's move to Fulham is no nearer to being completed, says Darlington manager Mark Cooper who denied claims that the transfer has been completed.

Boardroom level negotiations are underway between Quakers and the Cottagers who are leading the way for the highly-rated 18-year-old.

Burn, who was left out of the line-up for Darlington's 1-0 win at Histon last night, has been monitored by a host of Premier League clubs with Everton a known admirer.

Reports in the national media yesterday claimed that a switch to Fulham had been completed, but Cooper said last night: "It's as you were at the weekend.

"I've not spoken to the chairman since Saturday but as far as I'm aware nothing has been agreed.

"Deals can be agreed but they can't be done yet. So an agreement would mean nothing if, say, Manchester United came in and offered £1m then he would go there instead.

"A deal can't be done until July 1 anyway, besides he's struggling with a knee problem that he's had for a couple of weeks so there's no point us in risking him."

Cooper also said that Quakers are in no hurry to sell Burn, though he added: "There's no rush, the only concern would be that if he played and got a bad injury that could cost us.

"There's lots and lots of interest in him still but at the moment, apart from one or two clubs, that's all it is."
