Newcastle plan January move for QPR star

The Daily Express reports that the Magpies will try to sign the 26-year-old in the January transfer window.

Newcastle boss Steve McClaren has confirmed that he is keen on signing the highly-rated striker.

“He’s been on the radar here from the second half of last season, stayed on it during the summer and he will still be on the radar in January,” McClaren said. “Definitely.”

Austin was linked with a £15million move away from Queens Park Rangers in the summer, but ended up staying at Loftus Road.
