The 25 year old England hopeful looks destined to leave Loftus Road after an outstanding individual season in the Premier League in 2014/15.

The former Swindon Town man bagged 17 top tier goals despite his side failing to retain their Premier League status and this has, unsurprisingly, led to a host of sides being interested in capturing the forward this summer.

Jose Mourinho may see the £15m rated QPR star as a useful back-up to Diego Costa whilst a move to West Ham would presumably lead to a regular first team starting spot.

Southampton and Newcastle United are also keeping close tabs on Austin and it’s highly unlikely QPR will retain the player for next term.
