EDDIE Howe says Marc Pugh’s future will be discussed in the summer.

The winger’s contract at Vitality Stadium is due to expire in June and he is currently enjoying a loan spell at Championship side Hull City.

Pugh, 32, has netted three goals since joining the Tigers in January and Howe says his future is yet to be decided.

The Cherries boss told the Daily Echo: “I’m delighted for Marc.

“I’m in regular contact with him. I’ve watched quite a bit of his action for Hull.

“He’s doing really well. He’s scored some key goals for them.

“Marc will feel good that he’s playing again. I know he’s keeping a very close eye on things here as well.

“I think we need to make a call on what’s best for Marc and we’ll have talks at the end of the season.”

Pugh played a key role in Cherries’ rise through the divisions, joining from Hereford United in 2010, and has made over 300 appearances for the club.

However, after finding playing time limited this season, he opted to join Hull but says he has not yet been approached about a permanent move.

Pugh told the Hull Daily Mail: “It was massive I came here and did well because being out-of-contract in the summer, you want to give yourself a good chance of getting a good club.

“Hopefully somebody does want me.

“Nothing has been discussed. I’d never say no to anything.

“Hull is a fantastic football club and I will keep my options open because I have enjoyed my time here, but we will see.”
