Last updated : 17 October 2003 By Kevin Markey
The 25-year-old was released by United at the end of last season after three years with the club and started training with Barnsley after failing to earn himself a deal during a trial spell with Italian side Perugia.

The Australia international agreed to join The Tykes today, now owned by Peter Ridsdale of course, and is expected to go straight into the starting line up for the game at Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow.

"It is a wonderful opportunity to stay in Yorkshire at a good ambitious club." Burns told the club's official website.
