Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Burnley have insisted that striker Charlie Austin could still have a future with the club after his proposed move to Hull City broke down, Sky Sports reports.

Austin had been en route to the Premier League on Monday but he failed to pass his medical at the KC Stadium thanks to his troublesome shoulder and he has now had to return to Turf Moor.

Manager Sean Dyche had tried to convince the 23 goal man to stay, claiming that he had offered him fresh terms on a new deal, talks of which could be revived after the collapse of the Hull deal.

“From my point of view as manager you can imagine I’m not too disappointed to have a 28-goal centre forward in the fold,” Dyche told the Evening Telegraph.

“Obviously it’s a strange situation for the lad, wanting to get a chance to play in the Premier League – at the moment that one’s not going to go through.

“But he’s always made it clear how much he enjoys his time here with us, so we carry on as normal.

“The situation is out there about Charlie and it’s something we’ll manage wisely. To be fair to him he wanted to get on with it last night but it was my decision to say ‘let it settle for 24 hours and then go to Ireland with us’.

“We’re looking forward to that and getting him going again.”
