Marc Pugh Bournemouth departure confirmed

Marc Pugh's departure from Bournemouth has been confirmed.

Pugh will leave AFC Bournemouth this summer after nine years at Vitality Stadium.

The 32-year-old winger will depart the club at the end of June upon the expiry of his contract, bringing an incredible Cherries career to a close.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: “Marc has been an incredible servant to AFC Bournemouth over the last nine years.

“He has epitomised the club's journey through the Football League to where we are today and has not only been a great player on the pitch but a key figure off it, too.

“He has always displayed incredible professionalism in any situation and he set the standards in terms of teamwork.

“He is someone who has been the perfect role model for younger players to look at and follow.

“I would finally like to say thank you to Marc on behalf of everyone connected with AFC Bournemouth."
