Charlie Austin was released by West Bromwich Albion last summer after his contract expired at the end of the season. The 32-year-old re-joined former club Queens Park Rangers on a two-year deal just days after his departure, having spent the second-half of last season on loan, but his return to Loftus Road hasn’t gone to plan.

Austin hasn’t been too prolific for the Hoops and hasn’t commanding a regular starting place under Mark Warburton, so his stay in West London was cut short. The uncapped Englishman failed to make the required number of appearances to trigger a second season at QPR so he’s had to leave earlier than planned.

Austin scored just five goals in 33 Championship games this season and was substituted on or substituted off 30 times. The 32-year-old found himself behind Andre Gray and Lyndon Dykes in the pecking order and is now without a club in the eve of his career. He accused QPR of disrespect with the manner of his departure too, so it wasn’t the best season at Loftus Road.

Where he’ll go next is unknown.
