Clubs circle round Austin

A number of clubs are preparing moves for Southampton forward Charlie Austin, according to the Mirror.

Premier League duo Leicester City and Bournemouth could move for the twenty-eight year old should the Saints fail to avoid relegation while there is also interest from Championship promotion chasers Aston Villa.

The South Coast club currently sit eighteenth in the table and their chances of survival were dealt a huge blow with defeat at the hands of fellow strugglers West Ham United at the weekend.

Austin moved to St Mary’s Stadium in January 2016 and has since racked up forty-six appearances in all competitions, scoring sixteen goals.

Prior to that move Austin had spells with Queens Park Rangers, Burnley and Swindon Town having spent the first few years of his playing career in the non leagues.

Southampton travel to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon and the away win can be backed at a price of 9/2.
