Bournemouth

Cherries winger future on hold

16th April 2019, 05:27 by Michael Holland

Eddie Howe says he will wait until the end of the season before discussing the future of Bournemouth star Mark Pugh.

The winger was struggling for game time with the Cherries and was shipped out on loan to Championship club Hull City, where he has scored three goals since January.

The 32-year-old is due to fall out of contract in the summer when he will be available on a free transfer, and as things stand he has yet to be offered a new one at the Vitality Stadium.

Whether that will change remains to be seen and a decision is on hold for now, according to Howe.

"I'm in regular contact with him. I've watched quite a bit of his action for Hull," Howe revealed. "He's doing really well. He's scored some key goals for them.

"Marc will feel good that he's playing again. I know he's keeping a very close eye on things here as well. I think we need to make a call on what's best for Marc and we'll have talks at the end of the season."
