Newcastle United defender Dan Burn dreams about winning a trophy with his boyhood club

Dan Burn has revealed Newcastle United plan on winning a trophy above all else next season.

The Magpies are one of English football’s greatest underperformers in the past half-century. Several generations have passed since Newcastle won their last domestic honour, the FA Cup, in 1955.

Eddie Howe almost broke the lean spell last season, guiding the club to a first Wembley final in 24 years. Carabao Cup heartbreak resulted in a 2-0 win to Manchester United but co-owner Amanda Staveley promised better days are coming at the full-time whistle.

"We will win the Carabao Cup,” she said. “We will win the FA Cup. We will win the Champions League. We will win the Premier League.

"This is all about the amazing fans who have taken us on this amazing journey. We're just honoured and humbled. We feel very privileged to run Newcastle."

Newcastle stalwart Burn has opened up about how ending the trophy drought is a top priority for next season. As a Geordie, the 31-year-old knows all too well the failures at St James’ Park in recent decades - and laid down a challenge for his Toon teammates.

“You’ve got to show that you’re still ambitious,” Burn told The Athletic. “It was easy to show last season, with all the hype that was around. 

“The best teams can do that season after season, so it’s about us being able to do that. I still think we can have a positive end to the season. The challenge next year is we’ve got to go again. We’ve got to win something.

“We’ve got to (win a trophy) for me. Obviously, that’s just personally, but I just think with the squad we’ve got and the momentum we’ve got as a club, that’s got to be our aim, to come away with silverware.”
