QPR’s Charlie Austin 3/2 to join Aston Villa this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Charlie Austin to join Aston Villa
Odds: 3/2 @ Betfair
Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin is expecting to leave Loftus Road this summer, with the England hopeful having enjoyed a standout Premier League season for the now-relegated Hoops. Scoring 18 goals in 35 games in the top flight, Austin has proven himself as a prolific goal-getter in every division, and would surely shine in a Villa side willing to give him the support.
Aston Villa are among the favourites for his signature, with the Claret and Blues having sold Christian Benteke to Liverpool, as well as the previous bookies’ bet Newcastle having signed talented striker Aleksandar Mitrovic. Austin is said to be valued at around £15M, which would be half of the money made for the Benteke, and manager Tim Sherwood is left with little choice after losing his first-choice attacker weeks before the new season.
The 26-year-old has been respectful of the speculation, and has never made a public statement of intent to leave Queens Park Rangers, but his future seems destined for the Premier League. As a results, Betfair are giving odds of 3/2 for Charlie Austin to join Aston Villa this summer.
