Things haven’t really been working out for Charlie Austin with West Bromwich Albion in the top-flight, however he played a pivotal role in helping the Baggies lift themselves into the Premier League at the end of last season and whoever he signs for will have a capable player in the ranks. Indeed if there is one thing that a promotion-chasing second-tier club will be after, it is a proven goalscorer and Austin is certainly at the top of his game in that regard.
Cardiff City are favourites to secure Austin’s signature when the transfer window re-opens, the South Wales outfit a 3/1 shot to be the striker’s next club. This leaves the Bluebirds well ahead of a host of other domestic rivals, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest joint second-favourites at 6/1 apiece to get their hands on the player. Derby County are just behind in the betting market at odds of 7/1 while Sheffield Wednesday are 8/1 to get their hands on the QPR forward. Norwich City complete the market at 16/1.
Prolific Goal Scorer
Austin has been a prolific goal-scorer over the past few seasons and of the 38 Championship players to score over ten goals last term, his impressive average of one goal every 151 minutes was fourth best in the second-tier. Little wonder that he has been attracting the attention of several Championship sides.
4/1 – Cardiff City
6/1 – Middlesbrough
6/1 – Nottingham Forest
7/1 – Derby County
8/1 – Sheffield Wednesday
12/1 – Norwich City
