Bournemouth striker King frustrated as West Ham, West Brom continue to haggle

Bournemouth striker Josh King is frustrated as he battles to make a Premier League return before Friday's transfer deadline.

West Ham and West Brom were both keen on the Norway international but as of yet have not matched the Cherries' valuation for the 28-year-old, who is desperate to leave.

“Honestly, I don't know what's going to happen," he told TV2. "There's a lot that's happened. I could have written a book about what's happened the last two months and it had definitely become a bestseller.

"If I'm to be honest, it's been the two worst months of my life. But I can't give a reason. If it had been up to me, I would have already signed for a club and started the season, played four games and been in top form.

“I think the club would rather me be here, but as I said, I felt like I had done mine and been loyal to the club for many years. We had an agreement between us after what happened in January."
