Charlie Austin has this afternoon left Burnley after penning a three-year deal with Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

Austin, 24, moves to the West London club for a fee estimated to be in the region of £3million.

The Hungerford-born forward will wear the number nine shirt for the R's and joins the club with a strong Championship goalscoring record.

Austin made 75 appearances for Burnley, netting 45 goals for the Lancashire side. 

He caught the eye of former Burnley boss Eddie Howe after an impressive spell with Swindon Town, who spotted him at non-league side Poole Town.

The move was completed in time for Austin to potentially pick up his first minutes in a QPR shirt this Saturday, as the club kick-off their Championship campaign with a home tie against Sheffield Wednesday.

Austin told QPR's official website: “This is a really exciting time for me and I can’t wait to pull on the QPR shirt for the first time. 

"I’ll come in, give my all and hopefully score the goals that ensure we have a memorable season.”

New boss Harry Redknapp confirmed his happiness at sealing the move for Austin. 

“Charlie’s an out-and-out goalscorer and we’re delighted to have him here," said Redknapp.

"He’s scored goals wherever he’s played throughout his career and I’m very confident he’ll take his game to the next level with us."
