McQuoid Loan Still On?

Last updated : 19 January 2012 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

With AFC Bournemouth looking to bolster the squad before the January transfer window closes, could Josh McQuoid still be returning to Dean Court, albeit on loan?

Following an initial rejection from Millwall, then rejection from Crawley Town for bids to bring Matt Tubbs back to Dean Court, could Lee Bradbury be thinking of going back to SE London in an attempt to get Josh McQuoid back?

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Bradbury is quoted as saying: "We have got to make sure we have got enough quality players and strength in depth to maintain a push for the play-offs and one more player would give us that. We are still actively searching but the player has got to be right for the squad. We want someone who is hungry to be successful and someone who will buy into what we are doing. We want to bolster our attacking options. The lads are doing well at the moment but you can never have enough firepower because that is what is going to take you forward. We put in a couple of bids for Matt Tubbs but, in my eyes, Crawley’s valuation of him was unrealistic so the plug has been pulled on that one. We were looking at bringing in Josh McQuoid on loan but Millwall said they needed to keep him. If that situation changes and I am made aware of it, Josh would be a possibility. If I could get in a quality striker on loan for the rest of the season and buy one in the summer, I would look to do that. I will do what is best for the club. I don’t want to buy for the sake of it. I think you will probably get a better deal in the summer when players are either out of contract or only have a year left".
