Burnley manager Sean Dyche has played down reports that he has agreed a deal with Hull City over star striker Charlie Austin.
The former Swindon man scored 28 goals in 40 appearances last season and has reportedly jumped to the top of the Yorkshire club’s shopping list following their promotion to the Premier League.
But Dyche has disregarded the prospect of Austin leaving, and expects the forward to continue pre-season training as normal.
“There’s been no agreement reached, he told The Burnley Express.
“The noises are just the same because there’s people hovering and clubs interested, but nothing is appropriate for us at this time so he’s getting on with pre-season for us.
“There’s no reason to think any different until it becomes any different. He’s fine, he’s in good shape, listening to what we think is appropriate and he’s enjoyed himself since coming back for pre-season.
“We want to keep the best players at the club, but there is that reality with the financial situation that we have to work within.
“We’re just monitoring it as it unfolds. We want good players in the building and we want to work with good players.”
