Leeds boss Neil Warnock has confirmed he is lining up a move for SK Brann's Jamaican midfielder Rudolph Austin.

Neil Warnock: Looking at Austin

Austin, voted as the player of the season in the Norwegian premier division last year, had a trial at QPR when Warnock was in charge.

Capped 45 times by his country, Austin will be out of contract in December and wants to move.

Warnock told the Yorkshire Post: "He's a player I had at QPR. I had him over for a week and he's a smashing lad.

"I've always liked him, but it's always been a bit too much money.

"The last time I spoke to them, it was around the £2m mark. But his contract runs out in December and he's one that we are looking at as well as several others."
