AFC Bournemouth have re-signed Brett Pitman on loan - with it hoped the move can be made permanent in January.

The 24-year-old spent five seasons with the Cherries, before signing with Bristol City in August 2010.

Pitman was a favourite with fans at Dean Court, having scored 62 goals in 197 appearances. Pitman was in Bournemouth last night as the Cherries continued their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw against high-flying Stevenage.

The signing of Pitman means AFC Bournemouth now have eight strikers to choose from - including the injured Charlie Sheringham and veteran Steve Fletcher.

The Cherries have also been boosted after Marc Pugh signed a new three-year deal.

Last season's player of the year has been in top form again this year, and will be a key part of any success.

Pugh will remain at Dean Court until the summer of 2016.

    Unfortunately for Brett his work ethic and lack of pace means he won't make it much further than Championship level. No doubt he can score a goal or two, some spectacular as well but he's a L1 striker.
