Pugh: It is a lovely place to be

AFC Bournemouth winger Marc Pugh was delighted to finally agree a new deal to stay on the south coast with the Cherries.

Pugh had previously been offered a new deal during former manager Lee Bradbury's spell in charge of the club, but had not been formally offered a new deal during Paul Groves spell in charge between March and October.

But since Eddie Howe's return from Championship side Burnley last month, Pugh has been in excellent form and Howe had made it clear that he hoped to agree a new deal with Pugh.

Pugh has now signed a new three and a half year contract with AFC Bournemouth, running until the end of the 2015/16 season.

Pugh told the Daily Echo...

'...I love working under them (Howe and Tindall). No disrespect to Paul (Groves) and Shaun (Brooks), they liked to play a diamond formation without wingers and it doesn't really suit my game and it was getting a bit frustrating being in and out of the team.

"Eddie and Jason like to get the best out of me. Hopefully, I can continue my form and we can make a good push for the play-offs, if not top two. You never know...'

'...It is a lovely place to be, the people are great, the fans have been brilliant with me, I love the lads to bits and we get on so well, and it is just everything about the place. All we need now is Championship football and I believe we are striving to do that, if not this season then next season."
