The prolific striker has been linked with a possible move to the Bhoys as a potential replacement for Norwich target Gary Hooper.

Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby has admitted Austin would be on their list of targets should Hooper leave with the 23-year-old one of the hottest properties in the UK.

The former Swindon forward has scored 23 goals this season after netting 17 last term, and his form has not gone unnoticed by several Premier League clubs.

Austin's representative, David Threlfall, admits he would not be surprised if other clubs were looking at the striker, but cooled the rumours surrounding the Burnley hot-shot.

"There is always going to be interest in someone like Charlie, but while speculation is always flattering, Charlie is fully focused on doing his best for Burnley right now," Threlfall told Sky Sports.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
