Swindon Town rubbish reports of Austin departure

Charlie Austin
Austin signed for Swindon from non-league Poole Town in October

Swindon chairman Andrew Fitton has denied reports linking Charlie Austin with a move to Cardiff City.

Newspaper speculation suggested the highly-rated striker wanted to leave after Swindon failed to win promotion to the Championship.

Fitton told BBC Wiltshire: "I'm amused. I think someone should ask Charlie. It's a bad story put in by somebody who wants to unsettle the player."

Austin arrived from Poole last October and scored 20 times in 32 starts.

Swindon lost 1-0 to Millwall in their League One play-off final at Wembley whilst Cardiff missed out on a place in the Premier League after being beaten by Blackpool in the Championship play-off final.
