Joshua King: Few chances to impress at Old Trafford

Joshua King: Few chances to impress at Old Trafford

Sky Sports revealed earlier in the week that a deal had been agreed and now the young Norwegian has put pen-to-paper.

The 20-year-old, whose substitute appearance at Galatasaray was his first for United this season, will stay at Ewood Park until the New Year.

King, a full Norway international, has featured only twice for the senior side in more than three years at Old Trafford.

"Why waste six weeks of my career in the reserve league for United when I can develop myself and become better at Blackburn?" King told TV2.

"Henning came with an offer I could not refuse. Now I look forward to playing myself into the team, score a few goals, and help Blackburn up the table."

Berg added: "Joshua is a good player who will give us a physical presence, pace and a more rounded squad.

"He will get the chance to prove himself, and regain more match fitness with us the next week."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
