Lauri to stay on

Bournemouth have extended the loan of Fulham striker Lauri Dalla Valle until the end of the season. The 19-year-old initially joined the Cherries on a month-long loan deal but has impressed boss Lee Bradbury with two goals in his three appearances so far. Bradbury told the club's official website: "I'm delighted that he's staying. It's unfortunate for him that we've lost the two games that he's started, but he's scored two in three games, so he has shown what a good finisher he is. "He only needs half a chance. It was a great finish against Southampton, he put it right across the keeper in to the top corner, the only place he could have put it and he got us off to a good start. "He'll now be looking to get as many goals as possible until the end of the season, hopefully starting at Carlisle! He is good for us and gives us another dimension and that's exactly why we brought him in."
