FORMER Cherries skipper Miles Addison, striker Wes Thomas and utility man Wes Fogden could spark a transfer window player exodus at Dean Court.

The trio, all members of Eddie Howe's first-team squad, are understood to be on the verge of leaving the club, either on loan or permanently this month.

Defender Addison, who has been named on the bench a number of times this season, has not made an appearance since lining up in a 2-2 draw at Bury 13 months ago.

Signed permanently by Paul Groves in July 2012 following a loan spell under Lee Bradbury, Addison is understood to be a target for League One high-fliers Rotherham.

Thomas, reportedly the subject of a bid from Swindon recently, has been a regular in Howe's matchday squads despite being restricted to two starts and 10 sub appearances this season.

The 26-year-old, who spent time on loan at Portsmouth, Blackpool and Birmingham last season, is believed to be attracting interest from a host of clubs, although he is unlikely to end up at Swindon.

Fogden, who has been beset by injury problems this season, last featured for the first team during a 3-1 win over Notts County in April, one of 26 league appearances.

The 25-year-old, who joined Cherries from non-league Havant & Waterlooville in October 2011, is understood to be a target for League Two strugglers Portsmouth.

Meanwhile, striker Matt Tubbs, who is set to return to Dean Court following a six-month loan spell with Rotherham, could be farmed out on another temporary deal.

The 29-year-old, who has netted just once in 21 appearances for the Millers, is understood to be attracting the attention of his former club Crawley, League One promotion contenders Leyton Orient and League Two outfit Oxford.
