Premier League new boys the latest to be knocked back in a move for QPR star

AustinThe future of QPR’s Charlie Austin has been a constant feature of conversation over a pint here in the Football Transfer Tavern this summer.

Austin impressed everyone last season, firing 18 Premier League goals in his debut campaign in the top flight – a figure that couldn’t save Rangers from relegation to the Championship.

Naturally he has been a target for several Premier League clubs, but as of yet QPR are yet to budge on their £15million valuation.

The likes of Newcastle, West Ham and Tottenham have all been heavily linked, and now it is the turn of Premier League new boys Norwich City, according to the Daily Mirror.

Alex Neil is looking to add more firepower to his newly promoted Canaries, but has become the latest in a growing list of managers to be knocked back by the £15 million asking price.

QPR have already rejected a £12 million bid from Leicester City, and are now understood to have rejected an offer from Norwich that would have totalled £14 million.

With little more than a week remaining of the transfer window, does it seem Austin is going to stay at Loftus Road after all?
