CHERRIES have confirmed Brad Smith and Alex Dobre have extended loan deals at their respective clubs.

Smith has signed an extended short-term deal with Cherries, enabling him to continue his loan at Cardiff City.

The Australia international came off the bench to make his Bluebirds debut in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Leeds in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Cherries forward Dobre will remain with Wigan until the end of the season.

The Romanian is yet to feature for the Latics but was named on the bench for a Championship clash with Luton back in March – before the season was halted due to COVID-19.
