Fulham have this morning recalled defender Dan Burn from his season-long loan at Birmingham City.

The tall centre-back had made 26 appearances for the Championship side, managed by the former Fulham midfielder Lee Clark. Burn, who has yet to make a first-team appearance for Fulham, had spent a successful season on loan with Yeovil Town last term, helping them to win promotion from League One.

Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen wants to assess the 21 year-old in training and could be considering handing Burn his club debut in Saturday’s FA Cup third round tie at Norwich.
