Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has revealed that the club have no interest in letting go of star striker Charlie Austin in the upcoming transfer window.

The talented striker has been in top form for the R's this season, and has already notched up an impressive tally of seven league goals in 12 outings.

Recent reports claimed that the R's could be forced into selling the former Burnley star in January, with the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur interested in his services.

However, Redknapp has denied the speculation insisting that the club's hierarchy should try and secure the player's services on a long-term basis.

"I'm sure the club would [like to extend his contract]," He said. "I don't get involved in that, it's up to the chairman and [chief executive] Phil Beard.

"I'm sure everyone wants to keep Charlie here and I'm sure they'll be sitting down and talking to him."

Austin joined the West London outfit from Burnley in the summer of 2013.
