Southampton defender Jack Stephens has responded to Charlie Austin’s post on Twitter following the forward’s move to West Bromwich Albion.

Austin joined Championship club West Brom from Premier League outfit Southampton on transfer deadline day.

As reported by BBC Sport, the former Queens Park Rangers forward has signed a two-year contract with the Baggies for a transfer fee of £4 million.

 

The 30-year-old forward has taken to Twitter to express his delight at making the move to West Brom, and 25-year-old Southampton defender Stephens has responded to his message.

Good signing for West Bromwich Albion?

Austin is a very good forward who did well during his time at QPR, and the 30-year-old is a very good signing for Slaven Bilic’s West Brom side.

The former Burnley forward struggled to make a huge impact during his time at Southampton and had injury problems, but now that he is fully fit, the Baggies could see the 30-year-old get back to his best.
