Galatasaray have approached out-of-favour Everton forward Josh King, according to Football Insider.
The report stated that the 29-year-old is set to leave at the end of the season after failing to make an impression at Goodison Park.
He would depart on a free transfer, having only signed a short-term deal when he joined from Bournemouth in the January transfer window.
King on the periphery at Goodison Park
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti said after his arrival that ‘the dream for every one of us is for him to stay with us for a long time’, but he warned that it was ‘down to the player’ to convince the club that he merited a contract extension.
An exit for King could force the Toffees back into the market in search of cover for Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Twitter fan feed The Toffee Blues relayed the Football Insider report, and here’s how some Everton fans reacted.
Everton fans reflect on disappointing Josh King transfer
“Been a bit of a strange signing. Carlo doesn’t seem to rate him at all. Has he had a start since he came in?”
“Very unusual signing. Obviously the manager doesn’t rate the lad at all. Would have liked Carlo to have given King a start in at least one of our games.”
“Josh King, we hardly knew ye”
“Absolute pointless signing that”
“Must be terrible in training”
“Best for all parties, we can get a lot better.”
“Totally not good enough, who sanctioned this ?”
