Austin joins Albion

Charlie Austin has today joined Albion from Southampton for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old arrives at The Hawthorns with a prolific record of 150 goals in 325 professional appearances, including four against the Baggies.

The former Swindon, Burnley, Queens Park Rangers and Saints man, who will wear No.15, has signed a two-year contract.

His Sky Bet Championship record speaks for itself, netting 70 times in 132 games.

Austin is Albion’s seventh signing of the summer window following the recruitment of Filip Krovinović, Kenneth Zohore, Semi Ajayi, Darnell Furlong, Romaine Sawyers and Grady Diangana.

His arrival further strengthens Slaven Bilić’s attacking options ahead of Saturday’s first home game of the campaign against Millwall (ko 3pm).
