After leaving Town last summer, Burnett joined Woking but soon found himself victim of the fans anger. A small part in Sky One football-soap, Dream Team, soon followed whilst the 32-year-old made no secret of his desire to return to professional football.
That chance could have been given to him by former Blackburn team-mate Mike Newell, now Luton boss. Burnett played in Luton's reserve team over Stevenage this week and will hope to further impress in training.
