Charlie Austin appears to commit future to Queens Park Rangers
Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has hinted he will remain at the club, despite being linked with a summer move away from Loftus Road.
Austin, 26, scored 18 goals as the Hoops were relegated from the Premier League last season and it was widely anticipated he would land an immediate return to the top flight.
The former Burnley man has already scored four goals in the Championship this term, with QPR standing firm over their £15 million valuation of their player -- who was named in the England squad for the first time in June.
Leicester had a bid rejected earlier in the window and other clubs such as West Ham and Manchester United were linked with a move for the striker, who now looks set to stay at Loftus Road as Chris Ramsey aims to guide his side back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

It is not the first time Austin has used social media during the current transfer window.
He also took to Twitter to issue a response to West Ham co-owner David Sullivan after he said signing the player would be a big risk for the club due to his previous injury issues.
Austin labelled the claims as an "outrageous slur" and Sullivan later apologised.
