Austin move to Hull from Burnley breaks down

Hull City have pulled out of the £4.5m deal to bring in Charlie Austin from Burnley. The Guardian are reporting that the newly promoted Tigers have had to pull the plug on the deal after Austin failed a medical. Hull manager Steve Bruce has called it “the worst possible scenario for everyone.

Details of the medical have yet to be released however it is known that the striker has a history of shoulder problems. The 24-year-old made his name in the Championship where he scored 28 goals last term. Austin scored his first 20 goals last season in just 17 appearances, making him the fastest player to hit 20 strikes in Clarets’ history.

However the collapse of his proposed move to Hull was confirmed by Burnley in a statement which read: “Charlie Austin remains a Burnley player and the club will make no further comment at this time.” It is now thought that Tigers’ boss Bruce, who has already signed six players this summer, will up his efforts to bring in Celtic striker Gary Hooper after missing out on Austin.
