It has been reported that ambitious League One outfit Swindon Town have seen two bids for Thomas knocked back.

The 26-year-old, who spent time on loan at Portsmouth, Blackpool and Birmingham City last season, did appear destined to make a summer move at one stage.

He has, however, been drafted into Howe's plans for 2013/14 and the Cherries boss insists his priority at present is bringing in another frontman - not letting one leave.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "We want to bring in a striker to complement what we have.

"We certainly wouldn't want to be letting one go in a different direction, especially someone who has started the two games for us this season and done well.

"He (Thomas) has put in a couple of good performances. He has worked extremely hard and I think the fans really took to him on Saturday when they saw how much of a shift he put in for the team, and his attitude and commitment to the cause, so long may that continue."
