Striker Danny Philliskirk is the 16-year-old son of Oldham Athletic's youth team coach and former Clarets player Tony.
Well, he has just signed a four-year deal with non other than Chelsea until 2011!
Danny is now down to complete a two-year scholarship at Stamford Bridge. It is then intended that he will be moving onto a professional contract for the final two seasons.
The young striker is believed to have interested many Premiership clubs, including Bolton. His father of course, had a stint as a player there also.
Philliskirk has however not surprisingly opted to join Chelsea .
Oldham chief executive Alan Hardy told the club's official website.
'We're delighted for Danny - he is joining a massive club with fantastic resources which will help him develop his game,'
'Talking with Tony, I know he has been impressed with the facilities. Danny has four years of security and time is now on his side to develop into an excellent player.
'Also, we may have an opportunity of taking him on loan at some stage.'
The full terms of the contract have naturally not been disclosed, but it is understood Oldham are expected to benefit from a number of potential lucrative deals.
Chelsea have agreed for example to send some of the club's top youngsters out on loan to Boundary Park.
Well done Danny, Tony must be a proud man!
