Swindon star's agent plays down transfer talk

Next Story

Charlie Austin's agent has become the latest key figure to play down talk of a possible move away from Swindon for the young striker.

Town chairman Andrew Fitton has repeatedly stressed the 20-year-old hot-shot is going nowhere as interest and speculation has continued to reach fever pitch over recent weeks.

Newcastle, Cardiff and Nottingham Forest are leading a long list of clubs rumoured to be interested in the forward`s services after he burst onto the scene last term, netting 20 goals following his October arrival from Poole Town.

But agent David Threlfall has told "There is always going to be interest in someone like Charlie, especially after the season he has just had. While speculation is always flattering, Charlie is fully focused on returning to pre-season training and is looking forward to the season ahead."

Robins chief Fitton last week said: "I think there's a lot of people who would like him and would try and unsettle him, but we're very firm on where his future lies. Right now he's in the best place to be looked after, he's with people who know him and so far we've done a pretty good job."
