Three Out On Loan
The Cherries let three players go out on loan as the 'emergency' loan window closes.
Eddie Howe has delivered on a promise to thin his squad out by letting three go out on loan ahead of the emergency loan window closing to give them an opportunity of first team football.
The biggest move concerns Wes Thomas who has moved to Championship side Blackpool, to be reunited with ex-Portsmouth boss, Michael Appleton. It's believed that Thomas has submitted a transfer request given his lack of first team opportunities at Dean Court in recent times. The move will not come as a surprise given the recent arrival of Brett Pitman back to Dean Court from Bristol City, as reported earlier in the week. The loan period expires on January 1st. It isn't known whether this is with a view to a permanent move or not.
Also out loan goes Mark Molesley who has gone off to the south west to link up with Plymouth Argyle to gain match time. Arygle manager, Carl Fletcher was quoted on the signing as saying: "I'm really pleased to bring Mark in. We had to do a bit of negotiating to make sure that the move was viable and we pulled in a couple of favours. I spoke to Eddie Howe about Mark and he couldn't recommend him highly enough. Ed's opinion is one I trust and I'm sure that Mark will be a great asset to the squad".
Also heading out on loan is Josh Wakefield, who has signed for Dagenham & Redbridge. Daggers manager John Still is quoted as saying: "Josh is a player I have watched a few times. He was enthusiastic, bright and lively. He can play wide, centre midfield and off a forward. We have been helped by AFC Bournemouth financially and it hasn't cost us any money to bring him here".
On his Twitter feed Josh was quoted as saying that: "On the way to dagenham & redbridge to start my loan there! Excited for the opportunity!"
