The transfer all Cherries fans were hoping for has come to fruition as Rhoys Wiggins signs a deal for a permanent move to Dean Court. Having played a key role in the great escape a couple of seasons ago, and the push for promotion last season, Rhoys Wiggins has sealed a permanent move to Dean Court by signing a 2-year deal, with an option for an extra year. Chairman Eddie Mitchell is quoted on the Clubs Official Web Site as saying: "I'm absolutely delighted that we have secured the signature of Rhoys. It's an important position to fill as left backs are few and far between and this is an important part of the jigsaw that we have put in place.It is full credit to Eddie Howe for persuading Rhoys to come here. Rhoys has been at the club twice before for long spells and played very well and also fitted in with everyone. It is full credit also to the players because they made him welcome immediately and that has been a big factor. Everything combined has tipped the balance in our favour because there were a number of clubs looking to sign him. Rhoys still had a year on his contract at Norwich and that shows the ambition of the player because he could have just sat back and had a holiday for a year! It also shows the ambition of the football club and this is what we have all come on board to do.It shows that we are looking to compete and that is our aim. I'm sure we will have days that won't go as we want, but I am also sure that there will be many times that we will be jubilant".
