Dave Prentice has been speaking on the latest edition of the Liverpool Echo’s Royal Blue podcast about all things relating to Everton.
However, Carlo Ancelotti insists that he will use the Norway international, who is valued at £9.9m by Transfermarkt, but with just nine league games to go in the season, Prentice is finding the whole situation very odd.
He said: “I find it a bit confusing at times as to why we’re not seeing a little bit more of him.
“The fleeting glimpses we’ve seen, he’s looked relatively bright; he’s got pace, he’s got strength, and he just offers something a little bit different.
“Carlo’s asked about him, continually tells us that he’s happy with how he’s performing, how he’s training, and he will get opportunities – but then he doesn’t.
“So I don’t know quite what the situation is.”
Do you want to see King involved more?
Yes, he deserves a chance
No, he isn't good enough
TIF Thoughts on Josh King…
Before King moved to Goodison Park, he barely played any football in the Championship for Bournemouth, featuring in just 12 games, so maybe he has arrived at Everton lacking match sharpness.
Although, the only way he is going to get that back is if he plays matches and given that King has a strong goalscoring record in the Premier League, you would think that Ancelotti would want to play him as much as possible, but that doesn’t seem to be the case yet.
However, we would like to see King involved more in the coming games, and it is clear that Prentice would like to see that as well.
