Why is everybody writing off King? I don't believe he works with Drinkwater but he's a capable replacement if DD has to sit out a game or two. Plus he has a goal in him which is more than any of our other midfielders seem to have.
So the Sporting fans react badly to the news. Sporting release a statement saying they want him to stay. Player wants to leave. Club looks good. Player looks bad.
Not saying he is coming, but come on, this happens all the time!
