QPR striker Charlie Austin will hold off on making a decision regarding his future until after the international break.

The west London side were relegated from the Barclays Premier League this season despite Austin’s excellent form.

After scoring 18 goals during his maiden top-flight season, it comes as no surprise that the likes of Newcastle and Southampton are after the striker.

Those goals helped Austin earn his first England call-up and he is determined to make the most of the opportunity.

For that reason he will not decide where his future lies until after the upcoming double-header against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia.

“I feel like I’ve worked hard enough this season for QPR to try to be a Premier League player, but, at the moment, I’ve still got a year left at QPR, so what the future holds, that’s up to the club and my agent to sort out,” the QPR striker said.

“I’ll speak to (manager) Chris Ramsey and (director of football) Les Ferdinand and tell them my thoughts and they’ll tell me their thoughts.

“After these two weeks, I’ll sit down with the club, but I just want to be fully focused on these next two weeks with England.”
