Charlie Austin has told Southampton he does not want to leave the club this summer after shunning a move to West Brom, we can reveal.
West Brom made a move for Austin after they agreed terms on Jay Rodriguez’s return to former club Burnley.
However, after agreeing a deal with Saints –Austin threw a major spanner in the works by confirming he was in no mood to accept a move to the Hawthorns.
The 30-year-old has 12-months left on his current deal at St Mary’s and may look to run down his deal and earn a bumper pay-day next summer.
