Tubbs: Open mind on Crawley return

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

Tubbs still has a year remaining on his current contract at Dean Court after the Cherries signed Tubbs from Crawley in January 2012 for a fee in the region of 600,000.

The Cherries striker has been away from Dean Court this season on two separate loan deals.

The first move was to join up with former manager Steve Evans at Rotherham United, Tubbs made 21 appearances (10 starts) scoring just once.

He returned briefly to AFC Bournemouth before re-joining Crawley Town on loan.

Tubbs has enjoyed his loan move back to his former club, where he has scored 8 goals in 17 appearances.

The two clubs had been set to hold talks regarding a permanent move, however recent movement at Crawley which has seen a number of first team players released has left Tubbs keeping his options open.

Tubbs told the Brighton Argus...

"I am at a stage in my career where I want to have a good, solid season at a club which is going to be challenging for the play-offs or even going for automatic promotion...'

'...Crawley have released a lot of players and offered lads pay cuts so I will have to wait and see who they recruit in the summer before making a decision. I am keeping an open mind at the moment...'

'...I have spoken to Eddie Howe and told him I want to play regular football next season. It doesn`t take a rocket scientist to know that is not going to happen at Bournemouth as they have a fantastic squad and had a brilliant 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...'
