Pugh commits to Cherries

Bournemouth winger Marc Pugh has signed a new three-and-a half-year contract, keeping him with the Cherries until 2016.

The 25-year-old, who has scored five times already this season for Eddie Howe's men, joined from Hereford in 2010 and has become a vital part of the Bournemouth side.

After being the top scorer last season Pugh turned down a new deal with the club in the summer but following Howe's return the former Burnley man hinted he may consider extending his stay on the south coast before putting pen to paper on Tuesday.
