Howe: Pitman signing shows intent

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes Brett Pitman's return to Dean Court is another sign of intent by the Cherries.

Pitman left AFC Bournemouth for Championship side Bristol City in August 2010 for a reported fee of £800,000.

The striker went on to score 20 goals in 81 appearances (36 starts) before talks in the summer meant he looked likely to leave the club, with the Cherries and then Eddie Howe's Burnley interested in signing the 24 year old.

With Howe now back on the south coast, the Cherries have made a fresh move for Pitman, with the striker initially returning on loan before a permanent deal is agreed in January.

The Daily Echo believe the undisclosed figure to be in the region of £60,000, while Pitman has agreed a new three and a half year deal.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"When you get the chance to sign someone of Brett`s quality and calibre, it`s not an easy one to turn down...'

'...Hopefully, he will come in and continue where he left off (with Bournemouth).

"He is still a good age and it`s a great deal for the football club. It`s a statement of intent to show that the club means business...'

Last night it had been a long wet and windy day and I was sitting reading the programme in a dream like state waiting for the game to start when this disembodied voice tells me Mark Pugh has signed a three and a half year contract. It then goes on to say that Brett Pitman has signed with us on loan. I’m waiting for it to say that Ted Macdougall, Phil Boyer and Tony Scott have signed as well when I notice the big man’s stand erupt in applause and there is the familiar figure back home. Now it doesn’t matter what the score is tonight we’ve already got a result. I can’t wait to see Pugh put the ball on Pitman’s head with the outside of his right foot just like Tony Scott used to do for Ted Macdougall.
