Preston's love affair with Irish league players has been hit and miss over the past few years. Burke has become the latest player to fall in the miss category although there is still time for him to salvage something.
The attacker had a turbulent first season. Defensively his positioning was awful although going forward he did show some prowess. He was loaned out in January and did feature in pre-season.
A decision has been taken to allow Burke to retrurn to Shamrock Rovers ona 12 month loan. It is unclear what the future is after his loan spell expires.
