Celtic fans can you get 8/8 on this quiz on forgotten players. First up, who is this?

King is reportedly set to leave Everton in the summer and he currently earns £45,000 a week under Carlo Ancelotti. Howe is already working behind the scenes to identify signings for his stint at Parkhead.

Some of these Celtic fans would like to see King at Parkhead, while others just want to see Howe sign for their club soon.

While the 29-year-old has failed to get regular game time at Everton, he has played as many as 170 times under Howe. He scored as many as 50 goals under him, getting a total of 17 assists as well.

At Bournemouth with Howe, King helped the club get goals in the League after doing the same for Blackburn in the Championship (as per Transfermarkt).

This might be a sign of the fact that King is someone that Howe can trust and because of that, he might be a reliable signing for him at Celtic.
