Chelsea midfielder Cork reluctant to make Southampton move

Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork is unsure of his next move.

The Lancashire Telegraph says Cork has been left in limbo with Chelsea's financial demands currently pricing Burnley out of a deal for the midfielder.

Southampton had an offer accepted late last month but I understand Cork is not keen on a move to the south coast club.

The England Under-21 international remains open to a permanent switch to Turf Moor, where he has spent the last 18 months on loan, and has also attracted interest from other sides tipped to challenge for promotion to the Premier League during 2011/12.

But Chelsea have been reluctant to disclose the figure they accepted from Nigel Adkins' Southampton and, when Burnley attempted to respond to the Saints' bid by holding discussions with the Blues, they fell short of the asking price.
