Burnley striker Charlie Austin is attracting big transfer interest.

The Daily Star says Sunderland, Aston Villa and Celtic are among a long list of clubs poised to fight it out to sign Austin.

The striker is out of contract at the end of the 2013-14 season and the Turf Moor outfit will want to cash-in and ensure that he doesn't leave for peanuts.

Southampton and promoted Hull City are also ready to take a gamble on Austin, who has scored goals at every club he's been at.
