Despite the Boleyn Insider claiming no bid had been made for Charlie Austin money has continued to be placed on the QPR striker joining West Ham this summer.
Today Betfair suspended after odds crashed to 5/4. Betfair tweeted out “After a flurry of bets, Charlie Austin is now 5/4 to join West Ham this summer!” shortly after that they suspended betting all together saying:” BREAKING! Betting now suspended on Charlie Austin to West Ham”
The 25 year old who bagged 18 goals for QPR last season was a guest of West Ham’s principle sponsor Betway at Ascot races earlier this week. According the the bookies the Hammers are now joint favourites with Newcastle and Chelsea, while he is 20/1 to remain at QPR this summer.
