The 25-year-old is being strongly linked with a move from Loftus Road to St James' Park.

Austin netted 18 goals in his maiden Premier League season and the QPR striker is reportedly attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Newcastle, West Ham and Chelsea.

Southampton have also been mentioned as a potential destination, but it is understood he will not be moving to St Mary's this summer.
