AFC Bournemouth and Crawley Town will hold talks over the future of Matt Tubbs following the final games of the season.

Cherries striker Matt Tubbs could return to former club Crawley Town on a permanent basis over the summer if the two teams can agree a deal.

The Cherries striker has been away from Dean Court this season on two separate loan deals.

The first move was to join up with former manager Steve Evans at Rotherham United, Tubbs made 21 appearances (10 starts) scoring just once.

He returned briefly to AFC Bournemouth before re-joining Crawley Town on loan.

Tubbs has enjoyed his loan move back to his former club, where he has scored 8 goals in 17 appearances.

With a year still remaining on the 29 year old’s contract, the Cherries are open to talks regarding a permanent deal.

The Cherries initially signed Tubbs from Crawley in January 2012 for a fee in the region of £600,000.

Crawley chief executive Michael Dunford told Crawley News

‘I’ve arranged to speak to Bournemouth after the last game of the season,

‘We will have a conversion with Bournemouth about Matt Tubbs but that won’t take place before Saturday’s game against Bristol City. It’s neither positive or negative news at the moment.’
