AFC Bournemouth striker Frank Demouge insists that he is happy to continue to fight for his place amongst the Cherries squad.

According to Sky Sports the Dutch striker was quoted by Voetbal International last month explaining that he had told AFC Bournemouth that he wanted a loan move back to Holland with former club Willem II and Eredivisie rivals NEC possible January moves.

After not featuring for the Cherries since Eddie Howe replaced former manager Paul Groves as manager, Demouge has been working on his match fitness, with fellow Dutch team-mate Lorenzo Davids also being limited to just reserve team games since Howe re-joined the Cherries from Championship side Burnley.

Demouge told Voetbal International…

‘…They are happy with my training performances but prefer to move me to another English side. A month at another English side is not what I want, therefore, the Netherlands is an option.

‘Willem II is an option. I will wait until the winter break and will then look further, that is also what I have said internally.’


Asked about the comments by the Daily Echo after the striker scored his first goal in the Cherries colours during a 4-1 friendly victory over Bristol Rovers, Demouge claimed that he had been misquoted…

“They asked me whether going to Willem II or NEC would be an option if Bournemouth wanted me to go on loan and I said they would.

“But I also said, and they didn`t put it in the story, that I was feeling good at Bournemouth and that I wasn`t finished here. I want to repay the club for signing me and I want to show the fans what I can do. That is why I`m here…”

‘…I don`t care what they write or say about me. I know what I want, I know I`m not finished here and I want to show the people of Bournemouth what I can do.”
