The 25 year old has netted 17 Premier League goals this term, no mean feat given his side have been relegated, and Tim Sherwood sees the Loftus Road man as an ideal replacement for Liverpool bound forward Christian Benteke.

Austin may well feel a move to Villa Park could be an ideal one to consider, especially as under Sherwood the Midlands club have greatly improved.

It’s highly unlikely that Austin will remain at QPR and is on the verge of securing a first England national team cap and whilst a move to a side in the top six could prove tempting a move to Aston Villa would be a more guaranteed source of regular first team action.
