Aston Villa could rekindle its interest in Bournemouth forward Joshua King when the transfer window reopens next month.
According to the AthleticAston Villa are not desperate to sign players this January but are aware that they need to reinforce certain areas of their squad.
Dean Smith wants to bring in a versatile forward who can play both center and wide areas and Joshua King seems to be a perfect fit.
The Bournemouth star is too good for the Championship and the chance to return to the Premier League is likely to tempt him.
It will be interesting to see if Aston Villa returns with a concrete offer for the 28-year-old forward in the coming weeks.
Joshua King had made just three Championship starts with Bournemouth so far due to recurring problems and it will be interesting to see if the Cherries decide to cash in on him next month.
Bournemouth has done reasonably well in the English second division so far and is second in the championship table, five points behind leader Norwich.
The Cherries hope to win the championship and return to the Premier League next season and cannot afford to weaken their team mid-season.
Aston Villa may have to submit a lucrative offer to change its mind and it remains to be seen how the situation develops in the coming weeks.
