Bournemouth signing Defoe eager to work with 'brilliant' King

Bournemouth signing Jermain Defoe is excited to work with Josh King.

Defore can't wait to play alongside King at Bournemouth and backs Harry Kane to score more goals for his old club Tottenham.

He said: “Josh King is brilliant and I would have said that even if I hadn't been here. The stats last year show that. I loved Harry Kane from day one when I was at Tottenham.

“Even when he wasn't playing for the first team I used to say 'H, how many goals have you scored? He reminded me of myself how he is someone who just loves scoring goals.

“All the boys loved Harry. Who else? I don't know so much about young forwards cos I've always loved Aguero and players like that, but that guy Jesus (Gabriel at Man City) is really sharp."
