Wes Thomas (r): Moves on loan to Birmingham

Thomas has already played for two clubs on loan this season, under the same boss - Michael Appleton - but at different clubs, Portsmouth and Blackpool.

Thomas joined the Cherries on a permanent basis last January having initially impressed on loan from Crawley Town.

Blues boss Lee Clark told the club's website: "I first became aware of Wes at Bournemouth when I was Huddersfield Town manager and I've always rated him highly.

"He's strong in possession, very quick, has an eye for goal and is capable of playing in a pair or as a lone frontman. He's already done well in the Championship with Blackpool this season and he's a young and hungry player who wants to keep on improving.

"Wes fits the bill as he's exactly the type of player that I've been looking for."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
