Young Fulham defender Dan Burn has distanced himself from a January move to West Ham.
The 22-year-old has been one of the few bright lights for Fulham this season, leading to speculated interest from a number of clubs, including the Hammers. Indeed, with Winston Reid’s future at the club very much in doubt, a £4m deal for the Englishman seemed very plausible.
Despite this, Burn has played down the transfer at this time, claiming “It’s just speculation. The first I heard about it was on Twitter! I’m pretty relaxed about things. I love playing for Fulham and want to be here.”
Elsewhere, West Ham are reportedly interested in former Villa flop Jean Makoun, whose Stade Rennais contract expires at the end of the campaign.
