Team news: Late call to be made on King


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Eddie Howe has revealed that a late decision will be made on Joshua King, ahead of the weekend's game against Newcastle.

The Norwegian international picked up an injury while representing his country in October and has missed his side's last three games against Fulham, Norwich and Manchester United. 

King has been involved in five goals for the Cherries this year, despite a spell on the sidelines. 

Speaking in Friday morning's press conference, Howe said: "Joshua has been training this week."

"We'll make a late decision on him.

"At the moment, we're not sure if he'll play or not, so we'll have to see."

Elsewhere, the manager has also commented on the fitness of the rest of his squad. 

"I think that's pretty much it. 

"We're looking okay as things stand."
