DONE DEAL: QPR keep hold of Austin

Charlie Austin has agreed a two-year deal with QPR as he comes off contract at West Brom.

Austin spent the second-half of last season on-loan with the Rs.

Now the 31-year-old is looking to build on that in the coming years.

“I am really pleased to get it done and to be able to continue my journey here," he said.

“With the way we finished the season – and how I feel about the club hasn't changed – I wanted to be part of it and as soon as the opportunity was available I wanted to get this done as soon as possible."

Despite having other options, Austin was quick to agree terms with QPR, explaining: “I know this is the right move for me and the right move for my family.

“Where am I happiest? I was going through a period where I wasn't enjoying my football – I came here and enjoyed it straight away.

“I love everything that the club stands for. It's a family club and one that I'm suited to."
