Swindon Town chairman Andrew Fitton insists striker Charlie Austin is not going anywhere.

Newcastle United have been linked with Austin, along with Burnley, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough.

Fitton said: “I would not get out of bed for £1million.

“They would be dreaming if they thought he could be brought in for that sort of money.

“He’s not for sale and it would take a very special offer from a very special club to prise him out of our hands.”

“I think there’s a lot of people who would like him and would try to unsettle him, but we’re very firm on where his future lies.”
