Southampton have completed the signing of QPR striker Charlie Austin in a cut-price ?4million deal.

The 26-year-old was one of the stars of last season, but his 18-goal haul in his maiden top-flight season was not enough to help the west Londoners retain their Barclays Premier League status.

Austin had been widely expected to leave Loftus Road over the summer but remained after QPR stood firm on their ?15million valuation of the forward, whose contract expired at the end of the season.

However, the Hoops this week accepted what Press Association Sport understands to be a ?4million deal for the striker, which was announced by the south coast club on Saturday lunchtime.
