JASON Tindall insists Joshua King "understands the situation" regarding his future at Cherries.

The striker's contract is due to expire at the end of the season, but he has been subject of interest from elsewhere with both Torino and West Ham United having bids turned down during this transfer window.

The deadline for domestic deals is 5pm today, meaning King is running out of time to find a new club after he admitted in an interview with Norwegian outlet TV 2, he would have liked to have moved on by now following relegation from the Premier League.

Speaking this morning, boss Tindall said: "Any player that’s contracted to this football club is part of my plans. A player of Josh’s quality certainly is.

"As we’ve always said at this football club, if an acceptable offer for any of our players comes in and the club deem it acceptable then they’ll always look at it, as we did with Nathan Ake, Aaron Ramsdale and Callum Wilson.

"Acceptable offers came in that the club felt was right and players made the decisions to move on. As we are right now, we’ve had a couple of offers for Josh that have not been acceptable to the football club and he still remains a Bournemouth player."

He added: "I’ve spoken to Josh. We’ve stayed in contact right the way through my time here. I had a chat with him yesterday.

"He’s just got back from being away with Norway and he’s fine, he understands the situation and what will be, will be today. If an acceptable offer comes in and everybody agrees to it, he goes with the best wishes of me and the football club for everything he’s done for us. If that’s not to be then I’ll look forward to having him here for the rest of the season."

Asked if it is a win-win situation for the club regarding King, Tindall said: "It is, in a sense. Josh King in any Championship team I think everyone would want him to be involved in the squad of players they’ve got.

"For us it’s no different. If we do get an acceptable offer for the football club then it’s great considering what we signed Josh for and the value he’s given us. If we don’t then we’ve still got a quality player on our hands to choose from for the rest of the season."
