Cherries: James signs and Thomas completes Pompey switch
WES Thomas has joined Cherries' League One rivals Portsmouth on loan, while the Dorset club have this afternoon completed the signing of former England goalkeeper David James.
The Portsmouth News this afternoon reported that Pompey boss Michael Appleton was hopeful of completing an initial one-month deal for out-of-favour Cherries striker Thomas and the former Crawley man's move along the south coast has in the past hour been finalised.
The 25-year-old has featured just four times for Cherries this season and has failed to find the net in his past 11 appearances for Paul Groves's side - scoring just once in 22 games for the Dorset club.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper James has this afternoon completed his move to Cherries, as predicted in today's Daily Echo.
The former Liverpool stopper has put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season after agreeing terms yesterday.
The 42-year-old linked up with Paul Groves’s squad at Goldsands Stadium and is in contention to start against Walsall tomorrow.
