Thomson stays with Cherries

Thomson stays with Cherries

Jake Thomson will stay at Bournemouth for another month after impressing Cherries boss Eddie Howe in his initial loan spell.

Thomson joined the Dorset side in January and has made six appearances, scoring once against Wycombe Wanderers.

His new loan spell will terminate on March 14th, however, the Saints have ensured that they can recall Jake if they need to.

Saints boss Mark Wotte told the official site, "Jake's loan is temporary, so I can recall him at any time if I need to. That is different from the loan deals involving Stern John, Nathan Dyer and Rasiak who are on permanent loans with no recall option."

"We are very happy for Jake to extend his loan spell with Bournemouth because it has been very good for his development. It is giving him first team experience and will help him develop a winning mentality."

Cherries boss Eddie Howe added, "I'd like to thank Southampton for their co-operation in letting Jake stay for a further month. Jake is enjoying himself here and has been playing well and has quickly become an important part of the side, so it's pleasing that he is staying on."

Glad to see that Thomson is doing well. This will be good for his experience and confidence. Hopefully he can come back after this extended loan and challenge to play right wing.

Yeah it's nice seeing him do well, however, recently we have lacked some width and maybe Jake's pace could be what we are missing. Like you said, it would be nice if he came back from Dean Court with a real target to break into the first team on a regular basis.

Makes sense to extend the loan. Thomson will gain more by playing reguarly at Bournemouth than being in and out of the side here at Saints. Hopefully the loan will benefit Jake and he'll come back to St Mary's a better player for it.
