Bournemouth sign Joshua King from Blackburn Rovers

Bournemouth announced earlier today via their website that they have secured the signing of Joshua King from Blackburn Rovers.

The 23-year-old had the option of extending his stay at Edwood Park, but chose to sign a 3 year deal with the newly promoted side.

Speaking to the club’s website:

“The Premier League has always been the dream to play in,”

“I’ve seen what he’s [Eddie Howe] done with the squad here. I’ve watched a couple of games during the season, and the football Bournemouth play suits me very well I think.”

This is Bournemouth’s third signing of the week, following the arrival of Artur Boruc and Adam Federici from Southampton and Reading respectively.
