A host of clubs according to Sky Sports are preparing moves for 21 year old Swindon hot-shot striker, Charlie Austin in the January transfer window. One of the clubs mentioned is Burnley along with Millwall, Portsmouth, QPR and Southampton.
Swindon boss,Danny Wilson though will be trying everything he can to keep hold of the impressive striker. Swindon have already opened up talks with Austin trying to negotiate a new deal and ward off interest from other clubs.This is despite only recently signing a new two-year deal last February
Austin scored 20 goals in 31 games for Swindon last season and played a major part in their promotion campaign from League One. Sadly Swindon lost at Wembley to Millwall in the League One Play-Offs final.
This season he has struggled with injury but has still managed to score 10 goals in all competitions
The forward started with Reading as a youth player in 1999 but was released for being too small!
Swindon was his first professional club having played previously for Thatcham Town, Kintbury Rangers and his hometown side of Hungerford Town. He later moved with his family to Bournemouth and joined nearby semi-professional Wessex League Premier Division team Poole Town.
Austin was offered a trial at Swindon Town and signed in October 2009 for an undisclosed fee being given a contract until the end of the season.
The Clarets were first linked with Austin in the summer this year with both Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough reported to be competing for his signature. Back then a figure of £1 million was being banded about but his value could have increased since then
If the current rumours are true Burnley could have their work cut out trying to secure his services with the likes of automatic promotion hopefuls and second-placed club QPR sniffing around but this would certanly be an exciting high-profile signing for Clarets fans to savour.
