Cherries sign Painter

Cherries sign Painter

AFC Bournemouth have signed Brighton and Hove Albion defender Marcos Painter on loan.

The 26 year old can play at either left back or centre back and has made the move along the south coast for the remainder of the season.

Subject to Football League clearance, the former Birmingham City youth team graduate could make his debut at Preston North End on Saturday with the Cherries struggling for defensive options.

The Cherries have recently lost both Miles Addison and Tommy Elphick who have worn the captains armband this season, along with left back Charlie Daniels, while Stephane Zubar has joined Bury for the remainder of the season.

Howe's lack of defensive cover has forced him to utilise right winger Matt Ritchie at left back in recent weeks, while Steve Cook has continued to play despite not training throughout his recent three week court trial.

Painter has made twenty three Championship appearances for Brighton since their promotion from League One. The defender joined Brighton at the start of their League One championship winning campaign, making fifty four appearances.

Brighton manager Gus Poyet told seagulls.co.uk...

"Marcos is always a great professional to have around the club but he has not had a lot of chances to play this season because of the form and quality of Wayne Bridge.

"It`s important for Marcos to be playing regular football so it was a good decision for him to move to Bournemouth on loan, where he can help them push for promotion out of League One.

"We hope that he has successful remainder of the season."
