The 19-year-old centre back spent last season on loan at Bradford City but is hoping to play in Thursday’s Europa League play-off round, second-leg match against Romania’s FC Astra, having played in the away leg earlier this month.

“I‘m hoping to be involved and if Slaven (Bilic, the manager) asks me to do a job anywhere on the pitch I’ll definitely be up for it,” Burke told West Ham’s website (

“The club has a few centre-halves this season so there’s a lot of competition there. If he asks me, I‘m just going to say ‘Yes’.”
