Cameron Stewart: My Hull City days are not over yet
CAMERON Stewart says he will not make any decisions over his long-term future until his loan spell with Burnley reaches its conclusion in January.
The Hull City winger was allowed to leave the KC Stadium on transfer deadline day following the Tigers' moves for Ahmed Elmohamady and Stephen Quinn.
However, City boss Steve Bruce is keen to leave the door ajar for Stewart's return in the New Year, stating the loan switch can help boost the rookie's confidence.
Stewart still has two years to run on his City deal and Bruce has stressed there is currently no option for Burnley to make the move permanent.

That leaves Stewart working towards a crossroads in his young career in January but the 21-year-old is keen to keep his options open.
When asked if his loan move to Burnley could eventually become permanent, Stewart said: "I spoke to the gaffer here (Eddie Howe), and if I really enjoy it here and he enjoys having me then it could be. I spoke to Steve Bruce and he said come here for six months and then we'll review it in January.
"I've still got almost two years with Hull so we'll wait and see what January brings.
"Leicester made a bid for me in January and over the close season my agent spoke to a few clubs, but I decided to stay at Hull. Obviously, with Steve coming in he's changed a few things and he's changed the system.
"We've been playing a back five – or 3-5-2, however you want to put it – so I could see myself not playing a lot of games.
"I think we both thought that it would be a good idea for me to go out on loan and play a few more games.
"I'm still only 21. I had a long injury and then came back, so for me to be spending a lot of time on the bench wasn't really ideal. I wanted to come out and try to get some more games."
The success of Stewart's loan spell will have the greatest say on his future but Burnley appear in no position to offer the seven-figure sums City rejected from Leicester in January.
Nottingham Forest and the Foxes are both known to have shown an interest in the winger late last week and they could also join the race if the Tigers choose to off-load in January.
Stewart made his Burnley debut just 24 hours after his exit from the KC but could not prevent the Clarets sliding to a 3-1 defeat to Brighton.
"I was in training with Hull on Friday morning and then I had to shoot down the M62 to try to get to Turf Moor in time to sign to play on Saturday," he said.
"To be honest I didn't really expect to play, but I did so I was very grateful for my start.
"For me personally I didn't get as much of the ball as I'd like to, so it was a disappointing result. But with the international break coming up hopefully we can get three points against Peterborough after."
