​Burnley striker Barnes not contacted by Austria

Burnley striker Ashley Barnes is not worried about whether he may get a call up to the Austrian national team following his impressive performances this season.

Barnes is in good form, and he does qualify to play for Austria through his grandmother. He was capped as an under-20 Austrian international nearly 10 years ago.

But he is not concerned about a call up right now.

On the subject of contact with Austria, he said to the Lancashire Telegraph: "Nothing whatsoever. All I can do is keep answering on the pitch and what will be will be.

"My first concern is Burnley Football Club and as long as we win, that's something else that either happens or doesn't."
