QPR’s Charlie Austin 5/2 to join Newcastle United this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Charlie Austin to join Newcastle United
Odds: 5/2 @ Betfair
Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has been linked with a move back to the Premier League, with Newcastle United leading the race for his signature. He’s already been subject to interest from one top-flight side this summer, but he has ties to the Magpies that could push through a move.
The prolific English forward having enjoyed a fantastic season with QPR despite the side’s relegation in the summer. The 26-year-old scored 18 goals in 35 Premier League appearances, and is expected to be playing his football in the top flight next season with a new side. Newcastle United, Leicester City, Crystal Palace and AFC Bournemouth are four sides keen on Austin’s signature, but it could be the North-East outfit that he chooses.
United manager Steve McClaren was a coach with Rangers for a short period, and they’d signed Austin in the months the 54-year-old was at Loftus Road. Newcastle are desperate for a striker who promises goals, and they have the resources to meet asking price. As a result, Betfair are giving odds of 5/2 for Charlie Austin to join the Magpies this summer.
