Bournemouth captain Steve Cook could be set leave the club on a season long loan this summer, as per a recent report by the Telegraph.
The 30-year-old is said to be attracting interest from several other clubs and could well be tempted to leave the Vitality Stadium in search of a guarantee of regular football.
Cook is yet to play in the league as club captain and his only appearance of the campaign so far came in the Carabao Cup defeat to Norwich City, thus leaving questions marks over his long term future on the South Coast.
The fine form of young Zeno Ibsen Rossi and the recent signing of Gary Cahill have seemingly dropped the veteran down the pecking order under Scott Parker and he could now be set to move on.
12 of these 25 AFC Bournemouth facts are fake – Can you identify them?
Now into the final 12 months of his contract with the Cherries, Cook could well jump at the chance to head out on loan this season after making over 380 appearances for the club since joining from Brighton and Hove Albion back in 2011.
A move away from the club may be tough to take for Cook but quite frankly there isn’t a place for him in the starting eleven at present under Parker.
At this stage of his career he will want to be playing as regularly as possible, so if that means he has to move, so be it.
There is bound to be plenty of other Football League clubs that would be interested in signing the 30-year-old centre back and there could well be offers on the table for his services already.
He now has to choose his next destination carefully, as failure to do so could result in him being left out in the cold at Bournemouth as he continues to run down his contract.
