Liverpool striker target refuses to sign new QPR deal

Charlie Austin is undecided on his Loftus Road future…

Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin will wait until the summer before deciding on whether to sign a new deal at the club.

With the London-based side fighting against relegation, Austin continues to stall on a £60,000-per-week offer.

Reports in the Daily Mail confirm that Rangers are desperate to tie down their top scorer, who has netted 13 times so far this season, but have so far been met with disappointment in their efforts to do so.

The 25-year-old remains committed to Harry Redknapp’s side, but would undoubtedly be tempted by the offer of a move to an established Premier League outfit such as Liverpool, whose interest was mooted late last year.

Austin has less than 18 months left on his contract at Rangers, and that is inevitably going to increase interest in his services.

His current deal is worth just £28,000-per-week, some way short of the club’s highest paid player, Joey Barton, who is on £90,000-per-week.

He is the leading English goalscorer in the Premier League and is behind only Chelsea’s Diego Costa (15) and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (14) in the list of leading goalscorers, this despite QPR being stranded in the relegation zone following their most recent defeat at the hands of Burnley.
