It went almost unnoticed but it appears Burnley were trying to sign Hamburg’s Serbian international winger Filip Kostić almost two weeks ago on the last day of the transfer window.

It will come as no surprise with Sean Dyche reportedly keen to bring in another wide man during the summer but there was little to link us with Kostić until after the window had actually closed.

His side Hamburg, once European Cup opponents for Burnley, have been relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time and it was expected that he would move on from the Volksparkstadion. He’s been with them for two years since signing from Vfb Stuttgart for a reported fee of €14 million and has gone on to play over sixty games for them. He was also part of the Serbia World Cup squad and played in all three of their group games.

A report in the Lancashire Telegraph suggested Burnley might return in January for him should he not move on this month but that’s what he has done, albeit initially on loan. Yesterday he signed for Eintracht Frankfurt, the only team other than Hamburg to knock us out of a European competition, for the next two seasons with Eintracht also having secured an option to sign him permanently.
