Career[edit]

Burns, who was born in Milton Keynes, started his career at Leicester City where he was a product of their youth academy after joining the club at the age or 12.[1] He signed his first professional contract with the club on 20 March 2009, signing a one-year deal.[1]

On the same day he joined Tranmere Rovers on loan for the rest of the 2008–09 season.[1] He made his debut for Tranmere on 25 April, coming off the bench as a 76th minute substitute in their 3–1 defeat against Leeds United replacing Edrissa Sonko.[2] He made his second appearance a week later in Tranmere's 1–1 against Yeovil Town replacing Charlie Barnett.[3]

On 17 May 2010, Burns was released by Leicester along with Stephen Clemence, Levi Porter, Billy Kee, Carl Pentney, Astrit Ajdarevic and Alex Cisak.[4]

He was given a trial with Ipswich Town in the 2010 pre-season campaign. He played and scored in Ipswich's friendly against Leiston. He signed for Conference North side Nuneaton Town in September 2010.
