BURNLEY will renew their interest in Hamburg winger Filip Kostic in January if he remains with the German club.

The Clarets missed out on a deadline day swoop for the Serbian international last week.

The 25-year-old was widely expected to leave Die Rothosen this summer after Hamburg's relegation to Bundesliga 2 admit reports in Germany that he could be available for a cut-price fee.

He has also been linked with Wolfsburg, Valencia and Fiorentina and with the transfer windows in Europe's other major leagues remaining open, he could yet depart the Volksparkstadion.

But the Lancashire Telegraph understands Burnley will make another attempt to sign Kostic during the January transfer window if he does stay at Hamburg, with Sean Dyche still keen to add a winger to his squad.

Kostic played all three group games for Serbia during the World Cup and he has now won 26 caps for his country.

After coming through the ranks at Serbian club Radnicki 1923 he moved to Holland with Groningen in June 2012 and scored 12 goals in 48 games for the club.

Ahead of the 2014/15 season Kostic moved to VfB Stuttgart and after eight goals in 63 games he made a €14 million switch to Hamburg in the summer of 2015.

Despite nine goals in 65 games for the famous German club, he was unable to help keep them in the Bundesliga last season.

Dyche was keen to sign a wide player throughout the summer and a £8million move for Swansea City man Sam Clucas fell through in the final week of the window.
