The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Bolton, featuring 26 times as Phil Parkinson's side secured their Championship status on the final day of the campaign.

Burke returned briefly to West Ham midway through last season and scored his only goal for the club in the 1-0 FA Cup third-round replay win over League One side Shrewsbury.
