Bournemouth striker Joshua King has commented on the recent speculation linking him with a move to Premier League runners up Tottenham Hotspur, as well as newcomers Newcastle United. King has since responded to the transfer rumours by saying he is "intrigued" but would be happy to stay at the Vitality Stadium next season.


The 25-year-old endured a successful end to Bournemouth's campaign - scoring five in his last seven appearances - taking King's tally up to 17 for the season. 


The Norwegian international's form has attracted interest from the likes of Spurs, as well as Newcastle and Everton, but King has said he is looking forward to another season working under Cherries boss Eddie Howe.

"I was focusing on the season and finishing it strongly," King told the ​Daily Echo.


"But I would be a liar if I said I hadn't noticed it. It was in most papers in England and you have got people tagging you and sending you links here and there.


"I was intrigued even being mentioned in the same sentence as Spurs, a big team who play in the Champions League.


"It is the summer holiday now and I've learned so much from the gaffer here.

"You never know in football but, hopefully, I will be here next year and I'm looking forward to working with the gaffer because he's been brilliant with me since the day I set foot on the training ground.


"I'm a different player (from the one who signed from Blackburn) in that I'm fitter and have maybe got my hunger back."


King only signed a new four-year contract with the Cherries last summer - he moved from Blackburn for a bargain £1m in the summer of 2015.
