ROVERS WANT KING TO REIGN FOR A LONG TIME

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

JOSH King’s FA Cup hero­ics will see him sign a new deal at Black­burn very soon, ac­cord­ing to manager Gary Bowyer.

The for­mer Manch­ester United young­ster net­ted a hat-trick in the 4-1 romp against Pre­mier League Stoke City to help his side march into the last eight – and a quar­ter-fi­nal at Liver­pool.

Bowyer sees no rea­son why the 23year-old Nor­we­gian in­ter­na­tional would want to move away from Ewood Park to pas­tures new.

“He’s been here a long time and he’s now start­ing to play in his pre­ferred po­si­tion, so while he’s happy he’ll want to be around,” said Bowyer of the striker.
