A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from NUFC 360, which has relayed news from various sources that state that the Toon have told Bournemouth they would be willing to pay up to £15m for Josh King and that West Ham United also want the 28-year-old but aren’t willing to meet the Cherries’ fee.
Here’s what fans had to say on the rumour:
“That says we would pay £15m.. absolutely ridiculous haha no chance on earth”
“He’s no different to Gayle. Non starter”
Do you think Newcastle would pay £15m for King?
No, not a chance
Yes, we could do it
Fulham are reportedly interested in Dwight Gayle, who also only has until the end of June left on his contract, so if they were to sell him, then you would think that could raise some money for any potential move for King.
This post continued to draw in Newcastle supporters, though these fans shared more of a positive view.
“Exactly what we need IMO. Same build as Wilson but can be deployed on the left, behind the forward or as a striker. Got a few tricks up his sleeve as well.”
“I’d glady pay that myself has great link up play with Wilson and fraser think it be a steal for a 28 year old”
“That’s an absolute steal for him! King and Wilson up top man”
One fan claimed that ‘it’s all coming together’, with Joshua King potentially coming from Eddie Howe’s former club. Interestingly, some Newcastle fans have already called for the 43-year-old to take charge this season.
“Please announce Eddie Howe new manager… it’s all coming together”
