Burnley striker Andre Gray has said that he is happy at the club and is not wishing to leave.

The forward, who has five Premier League goals so far this season, has recently been linked with a move to West Ham United.

Gray moved from Brentford to Turf Moor in August 2015 and was an instant hit, ending his debut season as top scorer in the Championship, finding the back of the net 25 times as the Clarets got promoted straight back to the Premier League.

West Ham are in the market for a new centre forward and were linked with a £15m move for the Clarets striker last week.

The striker, who netted for the sixth time this season in Burnley’s win over Sunderland in the FA Cup, has expressed that he is happy at the club and wants to stay despite being linked with a move away.

“I’m happy. We’re 10th in the league and I’m playing football and scoring goals. I don’t think I could be in a better position,” he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“It’s just what happens. If I didn’t score that hat-trick the other week then you might not hear my name. That’s just the way that football works I suppose.

“It’s always good to hear your name mentioned in the right way but I’m happy here and I’m settled here. We’re 10th in the league and flying high. It’s just part and parcel of football.”

Burnley face a tough away trip to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League before a fourth-round FA Cup home tie against Bristol City in the coming weeks.
