Dan Burn

Yes, it’s true – believe it or not, Newcastle United’s Dan Burn is only the fourth-tallest player in the Premier League this season!

Nevertheless, you won’t see Burn partaking in any horse-riding competitions any time soon. At 6ft 6, he towers over the rest of his Magpies compatriots.

This season, the former Brighton man has shown he is more than just a lumbering monolith – he has slotted into the left-back role with surprising ease, putting him ahead of natural full-backs such as Matt Targett and Jamal Lewis.
