'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Thomas set for sit down talks with Howe

AFC Bournemouth striker Wesley Thomas is set for talks with Cherries manager Eddie Howe following his return from a loan spell with Blackpool.

Thomas had been on emergency loan with the Championship club after being reunited with manager Michael Appleton following his move from Portsmouth two months ago.

Thomas made nine appearances for Blackpool (7 starts) scoring three goals.

It had been thought that Blackpool would make an attempt to make the deal permanent come the start of the January transfer window, however they instead made a bid to extend his loan initially by one extra month.

With the Cherries still partly funding the forwards wages, the Cherries rejected the approach leaving the 25 year old striker to return to Dean Court.

With Thomas going out on loan to Portsmouth during Paul Groves unsuccessful period in charge and Thomas handing in a transfer request upon his return to AFC Bournemouth, Thomas has played just 19 minutes of football under Eddie Howe. But the pair will sit down and discuss the players future today (Thursday).

Howe told the Daily Echo on Wednesday...

"I will sit down with Wes first thing tomorrow and have a chat about how he feels. I will also convey our feelings as a football club and what we think and we will take it from there.

"We have to do what is best for this club. Wes has only got 18 months left on his contract so decisions will have to be made. We will sit down with Wes and see which way he wants to go."

"His ability as a player has never been in doubt. He is a goalscorer and a very good athlete. He can certainly play so the fact he went to Blackpool and did well was not a surprise...'
