Dan Burn’s dancing has Newcastle fans howling at ‘moment of the season’

Dan Burn scored Newcastle's winner against Leicester after slaloming past three defenders in the box and slotting home in the far corner … and yet, that somehow isn't what fans will remember him for tonight.

The 6ft5ins defender went full Peter Crouch in the dressing room after the game, spaghettiing himself around like a skydancer (or a whacky waving inflatable arm-flailing tube man for Family Guy fans out there) as his ordinarily-proportioned team-mates cheered him on fell about laughing.

His goal was amazing, but his this was even better, and it left fans in absolute stitches on social media.

"Hahaha go on big man," one Newcastle fan tweeted. "Dancing on all the Newcastle haters here," wrote another, while a third said: "I'm literally dying at this hahaha."

The clip was aired on Sky Sports shortly before Burn's post-match interview, and presenter Mark Chapman asked the 30-year-old whether he fancied giving viewers another glimpse of his dance moves.

"Absolutely not," he replied, with a look of 'oh b****** what have done?' plastered all over his face. "To be honest I'm actually gutted I've done it but I don't care."

Which was better, Dan Burn's goal or Dan Burn's dance moves? Let us know what you reckon in the comments section below.

The lanky left back's incredible solo goal was his very first for Newcastle following his £13m move from Brighton 12 months ago. Joelinton doubled the home side's lead mid-way through the second half to seal victory – the first for Eddie Howe's side in four games.

Burn, who was a die-hard Magpies fan growing up, spent time in the club's academy as a boy, but was released aged 11. Back then, he probably couldn't picture a day like today – and with those dance moves, he probably wouldn't have wanted to either.
