New start

Helm follows in the footsteps of Dwight McNeil, another former United youngster who has gone onto play regularly for Burnley’s first team.

Speaking to the Burnley club website, Helm said: “He’s a role model, if you like.

“He shows that the pathway there is possible and hopefully I can do the same as him.”

Helm will begin pre-season with Burnley’s under-23 side and try to work his way up.

He added: “Burnley is a Premier League club and hopefully I can make my mark here in the seasons to come.

“It’s a chance to show what you’re made of and I’m really looking forward to it.”

The 19-year-old midfielder played 20 league games for United’s under-23 side last season, scoring twice.

Helm had earlier sent a message after his contract expired, expressing his thanks to everybody at Manchester United.
