Charlie Austin tweets encouraging message to QPR fans about his future

The 25-year-old says he is happy at Loftus Road and not looking elsewhere.

QPR striker Charlie Austin insists he is happy at the west London club, according to his blog on Sportlobster.

Recent speculation may have worried R's fans, with the Daily Mail reporting that the 25-year-old forward is refusing to sign a new deal until the summer.

Austin, however, has assured fans by tweeting a link to his blog, in which he expresses hid desire to stay at QPR.

"I know some things have been written and said about my contract situation. I’ve got 18 months left on my contract, I’m in no rush," Austin wrote.

"I’m leaving that stuff to my agent and the people at the club and I’m just thinking about my performances on the pitch. The most important thing for you to know is that I’m not thinking about looking elsewhere. I want you all to know I’m happy at QPR."

Intriguingly, though, Austin has not denied - and more or less confirmed - reports about his contract situation.

The fear is that the striker will stay at QPR this season, or perhaps until his contract expires, and move on.

But Austin certainly appears committed to the cause at Loftus Road, with Harry Redknapp's side facing a tough Premier League clash against Manchester United tomorrow afternoon.

QPR's strong home form has been well documented, although Redknapp's men have drawn their last two games in west London - while they are without a win in five both home and away in all competitions.
