AFC Bournemouth forward explains why signing a new four-year contract was an easy decision

Joshua King has praised the impact that Eddie Howe has had on his career after signing a new four-year deal at AFC Bournemouth.

King became only the second Norwegian player to reach 16 goals in a Premier League season in 2016/17 and puts his fine form down to feeling right at home on the south coast.

"The manager's been brilliant with me since the day I set foot at the training ground," King, who joined the Cherries from Blackburn Rovers in 2015, told

"He's been honest in working with me, on and off the pitch and I felt like this was home after a year and I still feel the same.

"You're allowed to dream but you have to take things step-by-step. Two years ago if you had asked anyone outside this club whether Bournemouth could finish ninth I bet you 99.9% would have said we couldn't. But if you asked the gaffer and all the players here we would probably have said yes."
