AFC Bournemouth showed the strength of their squad by allowing three players to leave The Goldsands Stadium on transfer deadline day.

After signing highly-rated Swindon Town player Matt Ritchie late on Wednesday - the Cherries let Wes Thomas, Lorenzo Davids and Jonathan Meads see out the season away from The Goldsands Stadium.

Thomas has joined Birmingham City for the rest of the season, following earlier loans spells at Portsmouth and Blackpool.

The 26-year-old has struggled to feature in Eddie Howe's plans - putting his Cherries future in doubt.

Davids has terminated his contract for Bournemouth after a frustrating five months in Dorset. The Dutchman, cousin of Edgar Davids made only three appearances and has signed a contract with Danish side Randers FC.

Cherries' left-back Jonathan Meades has extended his loan spell at League Two club AFC Wimbedon.

Bournemouth may not have had a busy deadline day, but bolstered their squad during January. Brett Pitman made his loan move from Bristol City permanent, and has started his return to the Dorset club in fine form.

The Cherries also swooped for high-rated Scottish winger Ryan Fraser, along with Dan Seabourne and Ryan Allsop.

AFC Bournemouth take on the MK Dons tomorrow.
