As many have predicted, Wes Thomas is set to depart Dean Court to persue his footballing career elsewhere having been told that he does not figure in Eddie Howe's longer term plans.
Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Howe is quoted as saying: "Wes has six months left on his deal here and has a desire to play regular football. At the moment, I can’t offer him that guarantee and, because of where he is with his contract situation, I think he will probably move, whether on loan or permanently. It has been difficult to get him much game-time due to the form of our front players. Wes will feel he needs to earn himself a new contract at the end of this season and, unfortunately, that will not be with us. We have had a number of clubs contacting us regarding his availability and although things will have to be agreed with us, it will be very much up to Wes to decide where his future lies".
The 26-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs, the favourite is believed to be Swindon Town who have reportedly made a 6-figure bid for Thomas.
