Dulwich ace Oztumer lands Burnley trial

Wednesday, 12 March 2014

DULWICH Hamlet star Erhun Oztumer is spending the week on trial with Championship high-flyers Burnley.

Oztumer joined up with the Clarets at the start of the week but trained with the U21s because the first-team had been busy preparing for matches against Blackburn on Sunday and Birmingham tonight.

However, the attacking midfielder – who has netted more than 30 times this season for the Champion Hill side – is expected to train with the first team on Friday and Dulwich boss Gavin Rose expects him to be available for the South Londoners’ Ryman League Premier Division clash with Maidstone tomorrow.

“For a boy at our level to be training with a Championship side speaks volumes about his ability,” Rose said. “He has had a lot of interest this season, and whatever happens we will wish him all the best – but we will try and have an agreement by which if anyone does choose to sign him, he will remain with us until the end of the season and help our promotion challenge.

“Depending on how this week goes, Burnley may speak with us about having him back again to do some more training.

“Erhun is 100 per cent committed to our cause this season. He believes he can still get better and is a very balanced and humble person so you won’t ever find him losing his focus with us as long as he is here.”
