Swindon Town's Charlie Austin hands in transfer request
Austin was rejected by Reading as a youngster for being too small
Swindon Town striker Charlie Austin has handed in a transfer request, BBC Wiltshire understands.
The League One side confirmed last week that they had received enquiries about Austin from several Championship clubs.
The 21-year-old, who has scored 17 goals for the Robins this season, was reported to be disappointed that offers for him had been turned down.
Austin rose to prominence at Swindon after signing from non-league side Poole Town in October 2009.
In his first season at the County Ground he scored 20 goals and agreed a new two-and-a-half-year deal in February 2010.
He was part of the Swindon side that played in last season's League One play-off final at Wembley against Millwall - who are one of the clubs reported to be interested in signing him - which they lost 1-0.
Swindon Town and Austin have so far refused to comment on reports that he wants to move on.
