In exclusive remarks to FootballFanCast, Dean Windass has delivered his verdict on the rumored Aston Villa transfer target Josh King.
Reports over the summer suggested the Norway international was an option for Dean Smith’s team, but the club eventually brought in Ollie Watkins from Brentford in a big deal.
However, that hasn’t stopped Villa from apparently considering a new attempt to sign King, with Athletic recently stating that the Bournemouth ace might well be considered again.
Should Villa come back for Josh King?
Now, Windass has given his opinion on the club that could land King, either in the January transfer window or future windows, telling FootballFanCast:
I don’t think it looks good on Villa, you know? I just don’t think it would fit. “
While the 28-year-old may not be an absolute center forward, with his ability to take on another forward or even out of bounds, he is still a player who was Manchester United. sharp when signing less than 12 months ago.
Described as “Complete package“By former Cherries boss Eddie Howe, the £ 45k a week Winning forward could give Villa much-needed strength up front and also offer an additional option in the event of injury.
With Keinan Davis ‘future at the club uncertain, and Wesley just regaining his full physical form, there is no question that Smith could use some additional firepower to help share the burden with Watkins’ summer signing. .
And despite King’s indifferent start to the season, he’s annotated goalless, although his campaign has been hampered by injury: Villa should, in our opinion, look to bring the proven Norwegian to the Premier League, but Windass apparently disagrees.
