Cherries: Rolls keen to extend Dean Court stay

23 February 2010 07:00
LUCKY charm Rhoys Wiggins expressed his affinity for Cherries and then admitted he would jump at the chance to extend his Dean Court stay.[LNB] A star of Cherries' Great Escape last season, the talented left-back has again made a positive impact since joining the club on an emergency 28-day loan.[LNB] He is set to face Barnet tonight at Dean Court (7.45pm) in the final game of his loan period.[LNB] But with boss Eddie Howe revealing the extent of Cherries' player shortage, the club could seek an extension to the Norwich City player's loan deal.[LNB] And that is something the cultured defender would love to happen.[LNB] He told the Echo: I'm not sure whether it can happen with the transfer embargo. I'll just have to wait and see what Eddie says. Fingers crossed.[LNB] It's a good club so, hopefully, it can get done.[LNB] I like playing under Eddie and Jason and I like playing with this group of players as well.[LNB] We'd have to find out whether Norwich would let it happen as well first, but if the chance was there, I'd jump at it.[LNB] Having helped Cherries miraculously dodge the drop last term, Wiggins has enjoyed a decent record during his latest spell in Dorset.[LNB] In his six games to date, Cherries have lost just once, although home draws against Cheltenham and Macclesfield put a dampener on the fine wins over Crewe, Rotherham and Notts County.[LNB] The 22-year-old said: It's a shame we dropped a couple of points at home against Cheltenham and Macclesfield teams we were maybe expected to beat but they came here and made it difficult.[LNB] I think my win ratio is quite good down here that's always nice to know! I've just enjoyed my time down here and enjoyed playing for the club.[LNB] Former Crystal Palace man Wiggins revealed the management of Howe was a key reason behind his willingness to remain with Cherries.[LNB] He added: He takes a lot of time with individuals and improves you as an individual as well as a team player. He gets everyone together and the team spirit is brilliant. I can't speak highly enough of him.[LNB] When asked what Wiggins has brought to his squad, Howe said: I think he's been excellent and done really well for us in every game.[LNB]
