West Bromwich Albion are prepared to let striker Charlie Austin leave the Hawthorns before Friday’s transfer deadline.

Austin fired 10 Championship goals for the Baggies last season as Slaven Bilic’s side were promoted to the Premier League.

However the 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at West Brom and may leave the club before the closure of the domestic transfer window on Friday.

Derby County are said to be particularly interested in the striker, although recent reports claim that the player has rejected a late move to Pride Park despite the persuasions of England record goalscorer Wayne Rooney.

West Brom are known to be in the hunt for another forward to bolster their attacking options, which no doubt would leave Austin even further out of favour – but the former QPR and Burnley striker is staying put at Albion for now.
