Lee Camp: Open to Bournemouth discussions

Camp could become a free agent next month as the end of his Cherries stay coincides with the expiry of his West Bromwich Albion contract.

The 29-year-old joined Bournemouth on a rolling contract until January after linking up with Premier League West Brom in September as a free agent.

Since joining the Cherries on a temporary basis, Camp has made five assured Championship appearances and insists he is enjoying his time at Dean Court.

Speaking to the Bournemouth Daily Echo he said: "We are where we are. I think my loan and my contract run out the same day.

"We have got a busy period of games with some big fixtures coming up, a lot of winnable fixtures, so the focus is fully on that.

"The club have been excellent in their dealings - originally when I first came down and then with the extension last week - and it has all gone very smoothly.

"But I think they know my situation. If the time is right, I am sure they will speak to me one way or the other."

Shop window

Asked if he was open to remaining at Dean Court, Camp said: "I am here. That is how I look at it.

"If I wasn't open to coming here, I would have had an easy life at West Brom for a couple more months and done a bit of training and grabbed a coffee in the afternoon. But that is not in my nature.

"I am in the shop window and who knows, Bournemouth may offer first dibs on me. I am enjoying my time, I like the manager, I like the staff and I like the place, so there are a lot of positives."

Turning attention to on-field matters, former Derby and Nottingham Forest shot-stopper Camp believes style of play is well attuned to the Championship.

"I have found the set-up to be really good and really professional," he added. "They try to get everything right behind the scenes.

"On the pitch, we try to play the right way and training is good. I have got nothing but positives to say.

"I believe in playing football. I think the whole percentage football is a thing of the past. The way the game is going and moving, I think Bournemouth are set up in the right way to do it.

"Over the course of a season, if you continue to do the right things and play the right way, you will win more matches and there is no better way to win."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
