Dan Burn Finger: Reason as to why he has three fingers on his right hand
Have you ever asked yourself why Dan Burn has three fingers on his right hand? Well, let us tell you the story of this mystery.
Although the Newcastle United defender has only three fingers on his right hand, he has proven to be a top performer in the Premier League.
Most football fans are familiar with his huge 6’7″ inch frame, which makes him the tallest player in the English top flight.
A former player of Wigan, Fulham, and Birmingham, he scored 15 goals over the course of his career.
However, one less-known fact about Burn’s body is that he is missing one of his fingers.
Although the 29-year-old has never addressed the issue, there is a reason for it.
According to reports, the 6″7 defender is said to have lost the phalange at the age of just 13, whilst he was climbing a fence, which at that age obviously wasn’t just one stride of it.
Burn is said to have been wearing a ring on the finger when he got it caught on a spike in the fence and had the finger ripped off in the incident.
The center back doesn’t like to shared details about his personal life but a close source mentioned the story to The Sun.
Having been on the south coast since 2018, Burn got his dream move to his boyhood club in January as they splashed the cash.
