Crystal Palace are ready to revive their pursuit for Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin, according to reports.

The Eagles were thought to be in the race for Austin earlier in the summer, but were put off by the R's hefty asking price of £15m for the talented frontman.

However, The Mail claims that Alan Pardew's side will look to finalize a deal for the former Burnley star, after the club's top officials said 'YES' to the transfer.

It is added that Palace will seek to offload Dwight Gayle in order to recoup some of the funds for Austin's transfer to Selhurst Park.

Austin has notched four goals in the Championship this term.
