Austin in, Jarvis out?
The Sunday Mirror suggests West Ham have offered QPR £11 million and Matt Jarvis in exchange for Charlie Austin. I'd be happy with that after the bad news that Enner Valencia is going to be out until Christmas with serious ankle and knee injuries. The 26-year-old Austin looks a natural goalscorer who can create his own chances. He gets tap-ins but can also shoot from distance too. He scored 18 goals in a relegated team and coming from non-league football and having once worked as a bricklayer he seems more well-grounded than the average Fancy Dan. While it's just not been happening for Matt Jarvis at West Ham and a change of club might do him good.
