Tubbs: Open mind on Crawley return

AFC Bournemouth striker Matt Tubbs remains open minded on a possible return to Crawley Town next season.

"Eddie is quite happy with what he has got and is looking to bring in a couple more as well so I have been in the game long enough to know that I need to look elsewhere if I want to play...'
