Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has admitted he will look for the "right opportunity" in January, but would be happy to stay with the R's, according to talkSPORT.

Interest in Austin remains high following his tally of 18 Premier League goals last season and especially so given that the English striker is out of contract at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has already notched eight goals following QPR's relegation to the Championship, in which they currently sit 11th.

Following a summer of speculation that ultimately failed to transpire into any move, Austin insists he is still looking for the right path to take, but also made it clear he was happy to stay and help his side fight for promotion.

He said: "I have got six months left [on my contract] and if the right opportunity doesn't come for me in January then I will stay with QPR and aim to get them promoted and leave with my head held high."

Premier League clubs will circle like vultures for Austin in January, just like they did in the summer transfer window - a period Austin described as 'crazy'.

"It is going to be a mad month. Hopefully it is not as crazy as the six to eight weeks was in the summer."

Austin revealed he was keen to find consistent goalscoring form before the transfer window opens in order to attract the biggest clubs. The towering forward has scored an impressive amount of goals this season despite being hampered by injury in August and September.

"I'm just trying to get a run of games leading up to the transfer window and trying to score as many goals as I can. Who knows what will happen in the future."
