And QPR icon Marsh has praised 'whoever is advising' Austin - whose stay will no doubt be a huge boost for the R's.
Have to say who ever is advising Charlie Austin should get a raise— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) September 1, 2015
Marsh also agreed, however, that a stay will benefit Austin and his agent once he leaves QPR for free (through bigger signing-on fees).
He seemed more interested in the fact Austin will be scoring for the R's rather than Crystal Palace, though.
Some time after Marsh's tweet, Austin appeared to quash any further Crystal Palace speculation, confirming on Twitter he will remain at QPR for the rest of the Championship season.
The 26-year-old could still leave Loftus Road if there is a major twist, of course, while a January exit will also be possible.
But an arrangement that sees Austin leave QPR at the end of the season will be hugely beneficial for both him and the R's. Either that or the west London club keep him even then...
