Wiggins loan at Bournemouth extended

Norwich City left back Rhoys Wiggins has had his loan deal Bournemouth extended for a further 28 days.

Norwich left back Rhoys Wiggins admitted he faced an uncertain short term future at Carrow Road after extending his loan spell with promotion-chasing League Two club Bournemouth.

Wiggins will remain on the south coast for another month after completing an unbeaten seven match spell with the Cherries' following a midweek 3-0 home win over Barnet that moved Eddie Howe's men back into the automatic promotion slots.

'It was emotional at the end of the game because I love playing here and now I can't wait for another month at the club,' he told Bournemouth's official site. 'The reaction at the end meant a lot to me because it's always nice to feel appreciated and I can't thank the supporters enough because they have been brilliant again and I hope I can repay them for that support over the next month.

'I want to do all I can now to help Bournemouth and I hope they get promoted this season because if any club deserves that, it's Bournemouth after everything the club has been through and what the side has achieved so far this season. I think the quality is here and that showed against Barnet and if the side can play like that every week, I can't see why they can't get promoted.'

Wiggins had feared playing a bit part role in the Canaries' promotion push after Lambert's decision to recruit Stockport left back Michael Rose on loan until the end of this season to cover for injured first choice Adam Drury.

'I don't know what will happen when I go back,' he said, prior to both clubs agreeing a loan extension. 'The manager says I am doing well and then brings in another left sided defender, so I don know what is happening there and all I want to do now is to carry on playing.

'It is difficult because I signed for a different manager at Norwich and was injured when the new manager came in. It has been hard work to try and impress him because he has his set team. I'll go back and like before I returned to Bournemouth, I will always keep an eye on how they are doing and will keep in touch with the lads. I think the quality is here and that showed against Barnet and if the side can play like that every week, I can't see why they can't get promoted.'
