Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin, who has been linked with West Ham United and Newcastle United, was on target against Cardiff City.

Queens Park Rangers trio Paul Konchesky, Ben Gladwin and Massimo Luongo have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the side’s failure to win against Cardiff City at home on Saturday evening.

Rangers played out a 2-2 draw with the Welsh outfit at Loftus Road in the Championship, despite going 2-0 up at one stage.

The home team took the lead against the run of play in the 33rd minute when Clint Hill headed in a Matt Phillips corner.

Charlie Austin doubled QPR’s advantage 11 minutes into the second half when he turned the ball in from close range.

Sean Morrison halved the deficit with a stooping header on 63 minutes, and Scott Malone fired home from 22 yards late on to salvage a point for visiting Cardiff.

Following the match, Konchesky, Gladwin and Luongo took to Twitter to have their say on the final result and Rangers’ performance.

Austin did not comment on the match or the team’s performance on Twitter, but the striker did respond to a fan’s comment the social networking site.

The language used by the QPR supporter is not appropriate for publication (but you can read it here on Twitter), but in essence he urged the 26-year-old to hand a transfer request and leave the Championship club this month.

This was the Englishman’s simple response:

According to a report in The Mirror earlier this month, Premier League trio West Ham United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are all interested in signing Austin before the summer transfer window slams shut next month.

The former Burnley star showed that he is of Premier League quality by scoring 18 goals in the English top flight last season.

West Ham, Newcastle and Tottenham are all looking for s striker, and Austin would be a good signing for them.
