Everton complete the signing of 48-goal striker

Everton sign Joshua King

Everton managed to finally land a new striker on deadline day with Joshua King arriving from Bournemouth.



The Norway international was linked with a Premier League return since the Cherries were relegated from the top-flight last season.

Earlier last month, he was linked with the likes of Fulham, Southampton and West Ham United before the Toffees pounced to sign him.

The marksman, who has netted 48 Premier League goals in the past, has put pen-to-paper on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

It is reported that there is the option to extend his deal for another campaign depending on his progress in the next four months.

The Toffees are currently eighth in the standings with 33 points, six behind the Champions League places with two games in hand.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has endured a barren league spell with no goals in seven games and King should be a quality competitor.

Meanwhile, the club recently sanctioned the departure of Cenk Tosun to his former club Besiktas on a temporary basis.
