English lad Burkett happy being only British pro in Brazil

As the only Brit playing pro football in Brazil, Seth Burkett admits he is loving the experience.

The teenage left-back has been offered a new 12-month contract by Sorriso and says he has interest from the bigger Sao Paulo clubs.

Burkett told The Sun: "One of my team-mates is Capone, who played for Galatasaray in the 2000 UEFA Cup final against Arsenal.

"We get anything between 3,000 and 5,000 fans a game.

"While I've been offered another year, there is also the possibility I could be moving to a club in Sao Paulo.

"It's a fantastic experience. I wouldn't be surprised if we now get a few more English players come out here.

"Even at parties, all the women come to me. Not because I'm a footballer - because I'm English!"
