Gradel Back? Unlikey!

Even though manager Kevin Bond might like to see Max Gradel back at Dean Court for the 2008/09 season, it is thought that a return is unlikely from the relegated Leicester City club.

Kevin Bond is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "Maxi gave us something different out wide and although I'd very much like to bring him back, I can't see it happening. He's an ambitious boy, he's a Leicester player and he must come into the reckoning with their first-team squad. He knows the division and did so well for us last season that I'm sure they will want him in their plans. I haven't spoken to him at any great length. I thanked him for what he did for us last season and told him how much I would like to have him back".
