AFC Bournemouth: Managerial change at WBA could affect Lee Camp stay

Bournemouth Echo: LOAN KEEPER: Lee Camp LOAN KEEPER: Lee Camp

BOSS Eddie Howe admits Steve Clarke’s sacking as West Brom manager may have adversely affected Cherries’ hopes of extending Lee Camp’s stay.

Goalkeeper Camp’s current loan deal at Dean Court expires following Cherries’ trip to Championship rivals Brighton on New Year’s Day.

And co-incidentally, Camp’s short-term contract with the Baggies also comes to an end after Cherries’ visit to the Amex Stadium next month.

Howe has made no secret of the fact he would like to keep Camp with preliminary discussions already having taken place regarding the possibility of a permanent move.

However, although Camp will be a free agent at the start of next year, Clarke’s dismissal on Saturday has left the situation up in the air.

A new manager at the Hawthorns may choose to invoke a 24-hour recall clause on Camp or could tempt him to stay at West Brom by offering him a new contract.

Asked by the Daily Echo whether Clarke’s departure had clouded the issue, Howe replied: “It may but I don’t think we will know until after they have appointed a manager. It certainly hasn’t made it any easier for us.

“Football management is all about opinions and someone might come in and have a totally different perspective on things. We just won’t know until after they have made that appointment.

“Lee has done really well for us and, in the meantime, he will play for us over the festive period and, hopefully, he will do well.”

Back-up stopper Darryl Flahavan is waiting to discover whether he will need an operation after damaging his thumb in training.

Flahavan is due to have a consultation at the Villa Stuart Clinic in Rome with Ryan Allsop back in training and on standby to return to the squad at Sheffield Wednesday.

This is a bit worrying, you think a deal is just about to happen then everything starts to wobble.

Guess they don't call us "lucky" Bournemouth though :-(

Lets hope WBA get a foreign manager then Camp will stillbe available plus we might be able to get a couple of other English players. What about Zoltan Gera he can play and dare I say it scores a few goals

Although a good championship keeper in my opinion not premiership compared to Henderson ball distribution a lot slower so for that reason I think we will still get him.
As for Shwan good luck in finding a new club a great keeper when we was in the lower leagues. I could be wrong but would he not sign a contract a while ago maybe that's come back to bite him.

Completely agree, much as I like Camp, if there was a chance of signing Henderson, he'd certainly be my first choice...

Now that Ben Foster appears to be fit again, as mentioned on WBA website - Hopefully will keep Lee as their third choice and first choice for us !
Campy is a quality goalkeeper, yet to show his very best at AFCB !

The mother of all ****-ups in the making. AFCB will end up with no experienced goalkeeper come January, or EH will end up paying through the nose to get somebody in, as he did with his 2.5m signing.
It is other departments that need looking into, not a position where we have decent cover.
The situation is becoming so farcical that EH is not seeing the wood for the trees.

Sorry Bobsworth. He's definitely Hungarian.

Seriously though, would you really like to sign him? I'm not a Cherries fan but if I was I think that I'd baulk at bringing in a 34 year old who has just come back from a serious injury. I reckon his wages would be prohibitive as well.

Look on Wikipedia, you'll see he's actually captain of Hungary and has 76 caps! How do you just 'become English' exactly??????? Though I agree he would be a good signing, the chances of us being able to afford his wages are minimal I think.
