QPR have announced that they have completed a deal to sign Charlie Austin on a permanent basis.
Austin spent the second-half of this year’s campaign on loan with the Rs from West Brom, having previously found regular game time hard to come by with the Baggies.
The forward made a positive impact with Mark Warburton’s side, and scored seven goals in 21 appearances for QPR, as they finished ninth in the Championship table.
West Brom then announced earlier this summer that Austin would be released at the end of the 2020/21 season, when his contract reached a conclusion.
QPR have wasted no time in making their move for the striker, and they’ll be hoping that he can pick up where he left off when they kick off their new league campaign in August.
Did each of these players ever score a goal for QPR whilst on loan with the club?
Plenty of QPR supporters took to social media to react to the news of Austin’s return, and it’s safe to say that they were in good spirits.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
Serious goosebumps at that. Well done for getting this done
