AFC Bournemouth winger Marc Pugh believes that playing on the south coast 'ticks all the boxes'.
Marc Pugh joined the Cherries from Hereford in 2010 on a 3 year contract. Due to being under the age of 24, his transfer fee would be settled by a Football Association tribunal after Pugh had rejected a contract offer from Hereford.
Pugh had enjoyed his best season in the Football League and was rumoured to be receiving interest from Leeds who had won promotion to the Championship the previous season.
Pugh scored thirteen goals in League Two during the 2009/10 season, including three against AFC Bournemouth.
The Football Association set the tribunal at an initial £60,000 with additional payments seeing the fee rise to £100,000.
At the time then AFC Bournemouth vice chairman Jeff Mostyn described the fee as "quite excessive", but almost four years on many could now argue that it was a bargain price.
Pugh has gone on to make 184 appearances scoring 37 goals.
He has won the player of the year award on a couple of occasions and been part of one failed play-off promotion bid and last seasons successful promotion from League One.
Pugh told the Daily Echo...
"There's been a lot more positives than negatives since I've been here and I've loved every minute of it.
"Eddie Mitchell brought the club back to life and now Maxim Demin has come in and done absolutely brilliantly. Things have improved dramatically and it's been a joy to be a part of.
"I've always said I love living here and the football's matching that at the moment. It ticks all the boxes and you just can't beat the place. It's a great set of lads and a great environment."
