Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has pledged to remain with the London-based club until the end of the season.

Austin told Sky Sports: "I can't see myself leaving in January because I'm concentrating on playing for QPR."

The 26-year-old joined his current club from Burnley in 2013 and will be a free agent next summer when his contract expires.

QPR were relegated to the Championship after just one disappointing season back in the top-flight. Austin, however, was a shining light in an unaspiring Hoops side. Scoring 18 Premier League goals earned the Berkshire-born forward high praise and a first England call-up in May.

Austin has continued his fine form into this season, find the net seven times in the Championship already, four more than any of his Rangers' teammates.

Despite high interest in his services throughout the summer, a serious bid never materialised for the towering centre-forward.

"Football is a small career and you have to make the right decisions, right moves and if it's right for myself and my family," Austin continued.

The former Burnley striker was speaking at the launch of his new football school which will coach children of all abilities in Berkshire and Wiltshire.

He will be a vital part of QPR's chances of earning instant promotion back to the top-flight and Hoops fans will be delighted to hear Austin has committed to their cause.

If, as expected, Austin does leave the club at the end of his contract there will certainly be a few Premier League clubs fighting for his signature.
