The value of Bournemouth striker Josh King is likely to drop in January after financial disagreements meant that the Aston Villa and West Ham United target was unable to secure a move back to the Premier League over the summer, according to journalist Alan Nixon.
The Cherries were relegated from the top flight last term and saw a number of their prized assets leave during the summer window, including the likes of Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson.
Nixon has reported that the 28-year-old changed agent during the summer and that everyone wanted too much money in negotiations.
He has claimed that the striker’s value will drop in the January window, with his current deal set to expire in the summer.
King has proven his quality in the Premier League over the last few seasons, having scored 48 times in the top flight, and Danny Mills has suggested he would be a good signing in the winter window for West Ham.
Do these celebrities support Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Brighton or Southampton?
It’s interesting to get Nixon’s insight on why King was unable to secure a deal back to the Premier League this summer but it appears someone could be set for a bargain in January.
Both Villa and West Ham were keen on a move during the previous window so you feel if there’s a bargain to be had they show interest once again.
It’s going to be interesting to see how King approaches life in the Championship with Bournemouth and whether he lowers his own demands in January.
