Wigan Athletic

Burke is an academy graduate of Wigan Athletic. He joined the club when he was 13 years old and went on to captain the club's U18 side. In May 2016 he was awarded the Michael Millett Award for Wigan's Academy Player of the Season. The following month he was one of six players from Wigan's academy to be offered a pro contract with the club. Following his performances at youth level the season before, Burke was included, and featured regularly in Wigan's pre-season for the 2016–17 Championship campaign. He made his non-competitive debut against Liverpool and scored his first goal for the club two weeks later in a friendly against Fleetwood. He stood out for Wigan during the pre-season and on 8 August 2016 was handed his debut by manager Gary Caldwell in a 2-1 defeat to Bristol City. On 23 November, Burke signed a contract-extension with Wigan following a string of good performances in the early stages of the season.

Loan to Barrow

On 15 February 2017, Burke joined National League side Barrow on a month-long loan, and made his debut on the same day in a 1-0 victory over Macclesfield.
