Bournemouth manager Howe: Don't underestimate King importance

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says Joshua King is pivotal to the club's success.

The Norwegian striker has been linked with a number of clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "He is massive. I think Josh has been hugely impressive in the past few weeks and with Callum's (recent) absence.

"You were always going to miss a player of Callum's quality but Josh really stepped up. His overall performances have been very good.

"He is a pivotal figure to how we play and what we want to do. He has the pace, strength and technical qualities, which are quite unique.

"I find him great to work with. I love that level-headedness and the desire to improve that he has shown.

"I've really enjoyed working with him from day one and he's improved a lot. It's been great to be part of that process."
