The 18 year old is understood to have agreed to join former manager Sam Allardyce’s representative towards the end of last season.
Curtis last found himself in the news, when it was reported that attempts had been made failed attempts to woo Ravel Morrison into his stable which allegedly led to bust-up between the player and former boss Allardyce.
Curtis has now added Burke to a list of players which is currently understood to include James Tomkins, Jussi Jaaskelainen, Joey O’Brien, Kevin Nolan and Adrian, although there are reports this morning that Andy Carroll has left him.
Various sources report the pair have parted company over an alleged disagreement and the striker is now looking for a new representative which would appear to kill all stories stone dead of a deal to take the striker back to Newcastle.
However, a club source confirmed to ClaretandHugh exclusively that Burke had joined Curtis saying: “Yes, that’s the case.”
The youngster was previously represented by Stuart Richardson of Skill Equal which also looks after Mark Noble and who signed Reece to his professional contract with the club in October 2014.
