Centre-back Burn, 20, led by example as Boro's U21s won their league and the North Riding Senior Cup last season as well as reaching the final of the Final Third Development League Cup which will be played at Port Vale on Tuesday.

The U21s enjoyed a successful short stay in Holland this week where part of their itinerary was games against Fortuna Sittard and Vitesse Arnhem, games they won 5-2 and 4-0 respectively.

Burn's move was one of three pieces of business conducted by the club in the last few days alongside Connor Ripley's loan move to Motherwell and the acquisition of defender Jack Stephens from Southampton, also on loan.
