Chris Eagles is leaving his future in Burnley's hands after admitting Everton are keen to offer him a return to the Premier League.
Everton have been linked with a £4million bid for Eagles, who impressed in scoring a brace in Saturday's FA Cup win over Burton Albion.
David Moyes reportedly wants Eagles to replace Steven Pienaar despite the Toffees boss admitting he was unlikely to make any signings before the transfer window closes.
Eagles is aware of interest from Goodison Park and the former Manchester United admits he is keen to play in the top flight again.
"You miss playing with the best players in the world," said Eagles, who has also been linked with a reunion with former Clarets manager Owen Coyle at Bolton Wanderers.
"Getting back into the Premier League is one of my aims and that is what I'd love to do.
"I don't know the full depth of Everton's interest, but I know that they want me and it is between the clubs really.
"I don't really want to get involved myself. I'll let them deal with it and whatever happens, happens.
"I'm just concentrating on this club and whenever I put the Burnley shirt on I'm happy and thanking the crowd for everything they do for me."
