Finally, on this list of interested teams are Aston Villa, as Dean Smith’s side look to carry on their impressive start to the season, having earned 26 points from 15 matches which sees the Villains sit 8th, with a chance of qualifying for Europe if they can replicate their form over the second half of the season.
Notably, Smith’s side have relied quite heavily upon the fitness of summer signing Ollie Watkins, with the former Brentford man playing in every single minute of their Premier League campaign so far. Last season Villa struggled for goals up front, with strikers Wesley and Mbwana Samatta failing to hit the ground running and will be looking for competition for Watkins who has failed to score in his last eight league games.
This would be an excellent opportunity for King, as it would give the Norwegian a chance to join an exciting side at Villa Park, as well as having the opportunity to realistically compete for regular first-team football whilst Watkins is going through his goal drought.
Villa have the odds of 8/1 to take King from the Vitality to Villa Park.
