Burnley have denied that they have agreed a fee with Premier League new boys Hull City over the sale of star striker Charlie Austin, according to Sky Sports.

The highly rated 23-year-old has been a target for a number of Premier League sides this summer, though many expected a deal to go through with Steve Bruce’s men as they prepare themselves for a return to the top flight.

Reports had suggested that the two clubs had agreed a fee this weekend, however, the Championship side took to social media network Twitter to deny the rumours that any such deal is in place; “Contrary to media reports, Burnley Football Club has not agreed any deal with Hull City for striker Charlie Austin.”

Austin signed for Burnley from Swindon in January 2011 and has gone on to score 45 goals for the club during that time, with 28 of them coming in 40 appearances last season.

Options up front is something Bruce was short during their promotion campaign, despite his side going up automatically. They managed to score a total of 61 goals, which was amongst the lowest in the division, with midfielder Robert Koren their leading goalscoring tally with just nine.
