However, it’s now being reported by journalist Alan Nixon that top flight side Fulham are planning a bargain £6m move for the Hoffenheim man, whose contract in Germany runs out at the end of next season.

The news will come as a major blow to the Clarets, especially given Bruun Larsen’s comments once his loan came to an end.

“As the season ends I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your constant support,” the Dane wrote on Instagram.

“I was filled with sadness that the season ended with relegation but feel sure the joy can return again soon.

“To every one of you who supports us – thank you. We hear you. It means so much.

“To everyone who works for this amazing football club – thank you. This is why we are a team that will never give up.

“I have fallen in love with this club and have given everything, all season, and I feel proud to be your top scorer.

“I do not know yet what the future holds – but for now, again, thank you.”

The Bruun Larsen speculation follows recent reports that fellow loanee Lorenz Assignon has also decided against joining Burnley on a permanent basis.
