Queens Park Rangers star admits he’s leaving it to his agent
Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has publicly spoken out about his future for the first time this summer, but has refused to give anything away.
The Rs striker is expected to leave Loftus Road after their relegation from the Premier League to the Championship, but as of yet, he is still with the London-based club.
Leicester City have had a formal £12million bid rejected for the striker, with QPR holding out for around £15m for the Englishman, who netted 18 goals last season in the top division.
Austin has been linked with Leicester, Southampton, Newcastle United, West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and also Chelsea throughout the summer, but as of yet, only The Foxes have made a formal move.
When asked about his future, the 26-year-old refused to comment on where it lies and admitted that his head is with QPR until he’s told otherwise by the club or by his agent.
Austin Discusses Future
“What’s going on back at home is for other people to worry about,” Austin said on his future. “That’s for Les (Ferdinand), Chris (Ramsey), my agent and Tony (Fernandes) to sort out.
“For me, I’m here to get my head down and work as hard as I can, hopefully play in a couple of games whilst I’m out here and prepare for Charlton on the 8th.
“Until I’m told otherwise, I’m a QPR player and I’m preparing for the Championship next year, and if I’m told otherwise, then so be it.”
