Burnley ace Austin still keen on Premier League after failed Hull move

Charlie Austin is still determined to play in the Premier League despite failing a medical with Hull City.

The Burnley striker was set for a shift to the top flight returnees but did not pass the medical tests because of a knee injury.

However, the prolific 24-year old still has England's top competition high on his agenda and will work as hard as he can to get there.

"I thought I was going to the Premier League and that's where I wanted to be," he told the Burnley Express.

"Obviously that's fallen through so hopefully I'll get the chance, whether it be with Burnley or someone else.

"I'm a professional athlete and I've got to try to get over the disappointment of what happened. I've got a job to do here. I've got to work hard and get myself right for the season.

"I want to get onto the pitch and play as many pre-season games and train as many days as I can.

"I was disappointed at the move not going through. Obviously I wanted to play in the Premier League but I'm back here now at Burnley and I've got work to do.

"I've not left Burnley Football Club yet."
