Crystal Palace confident of landing £15m QPR ace Charlie Austin

Crystal Palace are confident they can tempt QPR into selling prized asset Charlie Austin for less than their oft-quoted £15m valuation according to the Daily Mirror.

The 26-year-old bagged 18 goals in his debut Premier League season, a tally that is even more impressive given QPR finished bottom of the table, and the England hopeful has continued to net regularly this season to show that talk of a likely Loftus Road exit hasn’t affected his game.

Charlie Austin has scored four goals in four Championship fixtures in 2014/15 and Eagles boss Alan Pardew hopes to lure the forward from West to South London before the transfer window slams shut.
