King: It’s been worst two months of my life

Daily Express - - FOOTBALL: SKY BET CHAMPIONSH­IP - By Tony Banks

JOSH KING has spo­ken of his frus­tra­tion as he bids to force through an exit from Bournemout­h.

The Nor­way striker, right, saw a £ 13mil­lion trans­fer to West Ham break down this week and his Cham­pi­onship club have also re­jected a bid from Torino.

Everton and As­ton Villa are still in­ter­ested but King, a target for Manch­ester United in Jan­uary, could yet stay put at the Cher­ries.

He said: “It’s been the two worst months of my life. If it had been up to me, I would have al­ready signed for a club, played four games and been in top form.

“The club would rather me be here, but we had an agree­ment af­ter what hap­pened in Jan­uary.

“If you had asked me two months ago if I thought I would be at Bournemout­h now, I would have an­swered 110 per cent no.

“We’ll see if I go now or in Jan­uary.”
