Austin not for sale - Redknapp

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has insisted that the club will not allow the sale of star striker Charlie Austin in the upcoming transfer window.

The former Burnley striker has been in top form for the R's, and has already notched up an impressive tally of 11 goals in the Premier League this season.

Recent reports have revealed that Liverpool may try to lure Austin to Anfield in the New Year, but Redknapp has quelled the rumours by insisting that the club are confident of keeping hold of 25-year-old, should they retain top-flight status next season.

"Charlie's got 18 months left. He's not going anywhere in January. We want to keep him here long term but it's up to Charlie," He said.

"We've got to concentrate on this season and making sure we stay in the Premier League. If we can do that then I'm sure we can secure his future at QPR."
