Hull City striker Daniel Cousin branded the club "bizarre and illogical" whilst on the verge of a loan move to Burnley - only to see the deal collapse at the last minute.
The targetman had looked certain to join up with Owen Coyle at Turf Moor on the final day of the summer transfer window before his switch failed to come to fruition.
Anticipating his departure, Cousin levelled a parting shot at the Tigers, only to find himself remaining at the KC Stadium at least until the January window opens.
"This is a new challenge for me and I am very happy to be signing with Burnley," Cousin had said, according to The Sun.
"I really want to play and the manager Owen Coyle seems to trust me.
"At Hull, I felt many things that happened were bizarre and illogical."
Meanwhile, Burnley's search for firepower following the breakdown of the signing of Cousin has led them to secure the services of Portsmouth forward David Nugent for the rest of the season.
