According to Mark McAdam, Queens Park Rangers are in advanced talks to sign former player Charlie Austin on loan until the end of the season. The current West Bromwich Albion man has featured just five times in the Premier League this season and needs more game time.
Queens Park Rangers could do with the Englishman, too, having found the net on just 20 occasions this season. Austin has certainly proved he can find the back of the net in the past, as well- especially at Loftus Road.
The former Southampton man scored 45 times in 75 appearances for QPR before leaving in 2016. Now, five years on, he looks set for a return.
Austin Set for Queens Park Rangers Loan Move
Chance for Austin to Find Best Form
Having enjoyed his best years as a player at Queens Park Rangers, Austin will relish the chance to make an impact upon a reported return. Since leaving the London club, he has rarely rediscovered his best form.
At Southampton, he impressed for a brief spell- scoring 20 times in 81 appearances, but at West Brom, he has failed to replicate any signs of the form once shown at QPR- scoring on just 11 occasions.
So, a move reportedly beckons back to the good times for Austin where he’ll hope to rediscover his best form.
Snodgrass Move Puts Austin Down Pecking Order
With Austin reportedly heading out on loan, this has seen Sam Allardyce make a swift move for a replacement. And that replacement is Scotland winger Robert Snodgrass. The former West Ham winger has joined the midlands club in a permanent deal this month- signing an 18-month deal.
The Scottish international will hope to play a part in guiding the Baggies to safety, avoiding the dreaded drop in the process. With his experience in Premier League relegation battles,he should prove to be an adequate accquisition.
