Simon Francis signed for AFC Bournemouth on loan, with a view to a permanent transfer from Charlton in November 2011.

The Cherries and Charlton initially agreed a fee thought to be in the region of 40,000 in July 2011, however Francis decided against the personal terms on offer and the deal collapsed.

After making 43 appearances the season before for Charlton, during the first half of the 2011/12 season he was limited to just two Football League Cup appearances.

With just six months remaining on his Charlton contract, the two clubs agreed a smaller fee in the region of 25,000 in November 2011 and a deal was concluded.

Francis has previously played for Bradford, Sheffield United, Grimsby (loan), Tranmere (loan) and Southend and has made over 300 appearances during his career, mainly in League One, but did also make 40 appearances alongside then team-mate Lee Bradbury in the Championship for Southend during the 2006/07 season.

Francis who is a versatile defender, capable of playing at either right back or centre back and is contracted to the Cherries until the summer of 2016.
