Newcastle United expected to sign £15m Charlie Austin this week

Newcastle United are set to sign QPR forward Charlie Austin according to the Metro.

Steve McClaren will look to complete a £15m move to bring in the 25-year-old England hopeful as he continues to freshen up his St James’ Park squad.

Austin bagged 18 Premier League goals last season, a superb tally given QPR failed to beat the drop, and the Loftus Road man is likely to be competing in the top flight in 2015/16.

The Magpies have already boosted their attack by signing Anderlecht marksman Aleksandar Mitrovic and McClaren has also brought in Dutch international Georginio Wijnaldum.
