Oldham Athletic head coach Stephen Robinson has told the Oldham Evening Chronicle that he is looking to try and keep Cameron Burgess at the club.

The Latics signed Burgess on loan from Fulham at the start of the season for a six month spell and while the youngster initially struggled in his first few matches in Sky Bet League One, he soon got used to the division and became a key player for the team and has been able to form a great partnership with the veteran Peter Clarke.

And as Burgess prepares to play in front of the BT Sport cameras with Oldham hoping to prevent an upset against the in-form Vanarama National side Lincoln City, Robinson has revealed that he is in talks with his parent club Fulham about trying to get them to extend his deal until the end of the season. And with Burgess keen to stay at Boundary Park, it seems likely a deal could happen.

Robinson said :”We are already speaking to Fulham and they want him to stay and we want him to stay,”

“It’s just a matter of getting the paperwork done and confirming it.

“I have spoken to Cameron and he is very keen to stay. He is enjoying his time here and he has come on a lot as a player as well.”

“I think he has done really well. He made a couple of mistakes in the early weeks but it shows what kind of character he is that it didn’t affect him. For me, he has got better and better.”

“I think he could go on to bigger and better things. He is only 21 years old, six foot four and left-footed. They don’t come around too often.”

“He is one that I feel could have a really good career and we are lucky to have him.”
