Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I'm very happy with the move and glad it's all done and dusted. I'm just looking forward to playing now. There were a few last-minute problems but we got them resolved and hopefully I can just look forward to the future. I know the lads have been doing well in the past few games, so I don't expect to start straight away. But healthy competition is a good thing and I think it will improve my game. Hopefully I'll get my chance, then keep the shirt".
he went on to say about the need to escape the drop to the Conference and teaming up with Jason Tindall again: "It's a massive challenge but I wouldn't have come here if I didn't think Bournemouth could get out of it. I know Jason Tindall and have spoken to Eddie on many occasions. I think they are definitely capable of doing it and that's why I joined".
His move, along with the signature of Liam Feeney and the loan extension of Rhoys Wiggins have been approved by the Football League.
