Howe open to Thomas recall

Thomas: Finding his form

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has hinted he may recall Wes Thomas from Portsmouth at the end of his loan spell.

The 25-year-old was loaned out before Howe's return to the south coast and has since scored three goals in six appearances for Pompey.

"He's done very well and scored a number of goals and has the attributes I like in a striker. So we will have to make that call when we can," he told BBC Radio Solent.

"He's into his last week and we cannot do anything until that week is up. Once it is and we are able to recall him then we will look at our options and make the best decision for this club."

Thomas is keen on extending his stay at Fratton Park, saying: "This is a great club. The team is doing really well and I am doing really well.

"The manager here [Michael Appleton] is quite keen to keep me. I'd like to stay. I'm playing well and scoring goals and that is the most important thing."
