Dean Windass has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that Josh King would snap up the chance to join Eddie Howe at Celtic.
The pair spent five successful years together at Bournemouth, even though their time on the south coast ended on a sour note following the Cherries’ relegation last season.
But they could be reunited north of the border, with Howe the favourite to be named the new Celtic manager despite weeks of ongoing talks at Parkhead, whilst reports believe that the 43-year-old has already identified the Norwegian striker as a potential replacement for Hoops talisman Odsonne Edouard.
King is currently at Everton, but only on a short-term contract, and having failed to score in 11 substitute appearances following his January move from Bournemouth, appears unlikely to be offered a full-time deal by the Merseysiders.
“Right away. If that was me, if I were Josh King.
“He’s probably got a great relationship with Eddie; he would pack his bags straight away if Eddie gets the job. I can see that.”
