Why is Dan Burn missing a Finger?

Dan Burn is an English professional footballer, currently playing for Newcastle United in the Premier League. He made his Football League debut for Darlington in 2009 and after 19 appearances for Darlington, he joined Fulham at the end of the 2010–11 season.

He spent the 2012–13 season on loan with Yeovil Town, making 41 appearances and a portion of the next season with Birmingham City. When his contract with Fulham expired at the end of the 2015–16 season, he joined Wigan Athletic.

Burn joined Brighton & Hove Albion for the 2018–19 season before being loaned back to Wigan Athletic until January 2019.

Dan Burn Missing a Finger on his Right Hand

Dan Burn, a potential Newcastle transfer target, only has four fingers on his right hand. The fact that he has a missing finger has never been acknowledged by the 29-year-old.

However, according to some stories, he was wearing a ring on it when climbing a fence when he was 13 years old, and the piece of jewelry got stuck on a spike, ripping the finger off. For a small kid, that must have been a terrible day.

Despite this, he never considered his missing finger to be a severe concern and instead concentrated on his career. Burn has piqued the curiosity of Premier League teams such as Fulham.

Darlington offered him a two-and-a-half-year deal with better conditions, but Cooper confessed they were unlikely to keep him, saying, “If I were a Premier League manager, I would sign him straight away, whatever the cost.”
