QPR striker Charlie Austin has seemingly snubbed a move to a trio of Premier League big boys after hinting on Twitter he’ll stay at Loftus Road.
The 26-year-old was reportedly a target for Man United, Chelsea and Tottenham this summer, but it seems as though he won’t be returning to the English top flight this season.
While there were also question marks over his fitness and injury history, it doesn’t look as though any of the top clubs wished to risk signing him despite many insisting they should.
Having impressed in his first season in the Premier League with the Rs last season, it comes as a surprise to see him have to ply his trade in the Championship this season.
United have moved for Anthony Martial this week, while Chelsea and Tottenham have yet to make a signing in that area of the pitch ahead of the 6pm deadline on Tuesday evening.
As for QPR fans, they will be delighted with the news as Austin took to social media to reveal his excitement about the year ahead…
