West Ham are in line to make a bid at some stage, however the £15m asking price appears to be a tall order, esp with QPR relegated to the Championship.
Austin has finally broken his silence, and his words are clearly those of a man who is highly likely to be departing the West London club within the next few weeks.
“What’s going on back at home is for other people to worry about,” Austin told QPR’s official website. “That’s for Les [Ferdinand], Chris [Ramsey], my agent and Tony [Fernandes] to sort out.
“Until I’m told otherwise, I’m a QPR player and I’m preparing for the Championship next year, and if I’m told otherwise, then so be it.”
