Appleton: We want to keep Thomas

Portsmouth manager Michael Appleton is hoping to extend Cherries striker Wesley Thomas' loan spell.

The 25 year old joined Portsmouth on an emergency 30 day loan at the end of September and scored on his debut against Scunthorpe.

He went on to score his second of the season last weekend against Crewe and has at least three more games with his adopted club to continue his goal scoring form.

Thomas' loan spell with Portsmouth ends after the Sheffield United game and Pompey are keen to extend his loan spell at Fratton Park.

Appleton told the Portsmouth News...

'...We will ask Bournemouth this week.

'They had a good win on Saturday so we will start politely asking the questions to see what the scenario would be come the end of the month and take it from there.

'Hopefully they have enough in their armoury as it is. They certainly have a big enough squad, anyway...'

At least he scores at Pompey. Perhaps he might be better staying there. He seems happy and islaying well.

I don't see why not. Gives Eddies less players to look at whilst Thomas is finding his form again.

I think Eddie will want to have a look at him in training. The reason he wasn't scoring, was the same reason no one else was scoring. We simply weren't creating any opportunities. Hopefully Eddie will sort that out.

^Wait? actually tbh we started off creating more than enough opportunities & the likes of Grabban & Thomas were wasting all of them. I think it was all down to no motivation in the first place & the change in tactics to try fix the problem as Thomas went away & found his form whilst Grabban is still hitting the side netting all the bloody time! But then again he did it again when Eddie was watching so maybe it's the brush beard :L Grabban is good at moving & switching play but it's what he's suppose to do is what he's bad at. Hope I'm proved wrong but for me Grabban is not good enough for where we are going.

Apparently there is already a done deal for Ritchie which happend weeks ago but as much as I would love that to be true it just simply can't be. I just hope Eddie just discards Ritchie & try getting any decent fair priced right mid.
