DAN BURN has signed a new contract that commits him to Newcastle United until the summer of 2025.

Burn's new deal is reward for an excellent two years that have seen him cement a starting spot at left-back since returning to his native North-East from Brighton.

The Blyth-born defender moved to Newcastle in January 2022, and has made 70 senior appearances for the Magpies, having grown up as a boyhood fan of the club.

"It means everything to me to play for this club and to sign a new contract," said Burn. "I said when I signed that I didn’t want this to be just a ‘stop-gap’ signing to keep us up – I wanted to be here for a long time.

“So, personally, it feels even more of an achievement signing this one than it was actually signing here in the first place. I’m delighted and looking forward to the next couple of seasons.”

Burn has been an ever-present in the Premier League so far this season after playing a key role in Newcastle's fourth-place finish last term, which secured a place in the Champions League.


The 31-year-old has already matched his goal tally from last season after finding the net against Sheffield United and Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks.

Off the pitch, he has already been an avid supporter of the Newcastle United Foundation’s Mental Health initiative ‘Football Talks’.

"Dan is a leader on and off the pitch so we are delighted he has extended his stay with us," said Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe. "He is a key part of our squad and has played a huge role in our progress since his arrival.

"He knows exactly what it means to represent this great club and is hungry to succeed, and that can only help the team and the club going forward."

Burn is the latest senior player to commit his long-term future to Newcastle, with Bruno Guimaraes having agreed a new deal last week.
