Burnley defender Ben Mee responds to 'mad Newcastle links'

Burnley defender Ben Mee says he won't follow Chris Wood to Newcastle United.

The centre-back was linked with a move to St. James' Park earlier on in the window, alongside team mate James Tarkowski.

Last week, the Magpies made the shock £25million signing of former Claret, Chris Wood, and Mee has had his say on a potential move to Newcastle United.

Speaking to the Athletic, he said: “I want to get the club out of this situation.

“That's the focus. I won't be going anywhere for now.

"I saw some mad links to Newcastle; imagine going there and ruining the 10 years I've had here, that's not the reputation I want.

“I want to keep this club in the Premier League and play for Burnley for a long time."
