West Bromwich Albion: Fans try to spur on summer signing

West Bromwich Albion fans tried to motivate striker Charlie Austin after the player posted a tweet of his workout routine on Twitter.

Austin moved from Premier League side Southampton to West Brom in the summer for a fee believed to be £4m on a two-year contract.

The forward has scored one goal and has started just two of the three games he has played at the club so far this summer (via Transfermarkt). His only goal came in the opening stages of the 2-1 defeat in the Carabao Cup tie at home to Championship rivals Millwall.

Austin struggled for goals in his final season on the south coast, scoring just three goals in 27 appearances in all competitions for Southampton.

Fans tried their best to motivate the striker after his lack of appearances at the Midlands club, and took to Twitter to tweet the forward.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Hawthorns faithful:
