Scott Burgess has signalled his interest in a permanent move to York City, report York Press.
The on-loan Bury midfielder has started nine of the Minstermen’s last ten matches since arriving from the League Two promotion candidates, scoring a spectacular goal during last month’s 2-1 triumph at Kidderminster.
Burgess, 21, has been at Gigg Lane since joining the club as an under-16 scholar and made his first-team debut at the age of 16.
He went on on to make a total of 23 senior appearances for the Shakers and scored two goals – all as a teenager – but hasn’t featured at all over the last two seasons at his parent club, who have farmed him out on loan to Macclesfield, Wrexham and the Minstermen.
Burgess is now relishing the regular starts he has been afforded by City boss Steve Watson and would be open to discussions regarding his plans for 2019/20.
Last season’s National League title winner said: “I’ve been at Bury for a long time now, but I haven’t played there for the last two seasons and it’s probably time for me to go somewhere and get regular football.
“It didn’t work out for me when I went to Wrexham this season, but the gaffer here as shown faith in me, when I haven’t had that from other managers so, hopefully, coming here could be a possibility.”
