The 29-year-old is reportedly 'likely' to leave Leeds this summer.
And Bolton Wanderers are planning a move for the Jamaican, the Mail claim.
Austin reportedly almost left Leeds in January but remained, much to the delight of boss Neil Redfearn. The Yorkshire side's head coach has labelled Austin 'outstanding' this term and has made him a first-team regular at Elland Road.
But that adjective is just one of many Redfearn has used to heap praise on the 29-year-old midfielder.
The Leeds boss has also called him 'excellent' this season, as well as 'infectious' in terms of how he gets the best out of his team-mates.
Leeds fans, however, have heaped something else on Austin this term in abundance: criticism.
Indeed, supporters have expressed many gripes with the experienced midfield man over the course of the campaign. Austin won United's goal of the season award but fans say he shoots too much.
Redfearn has praised his tackling and range of passing but fans feel he gives the ball away too much.
Should the 29-year-old leave Leeds, then, the manager may feel he is losing a key player. But others are likely to disagree.
