Former QPR midfielder Joey Barton has warned Charlie Austin against a potential move to Newcastle United.
Austin has become one of the sought after strikers in the Premier League after his impressive campaign with QPR. He scored 18 goals during the entire campaign in a team that were ultimately relegated to the Championship. His England debut also happened last season and this has only increased his transfer value. QPR are well aware that they cannot retain Austin under any circumstances, as the player is hugely ambitious in order to progress in his career.
