AFC Bournemouth loanee Marcos Painter is keen to win his third League One Championship medal while on loan with the Cherries from Brighton.

The left back has previously lifted the League One trophy twice during separate spells with Swansea City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Painter is a product of the youth set up at Birmingham City, but 11 appearances and a previous loan spell with Swansea he left the club in 2007.

He made 79 appearances in total for Swansea during two spells, including 37 appearances during the 2007/08 title winning season.

After moving to Brighton in 2010, Painter made 98 appearances for the south coast club, including 54 appearances during their title winning campaign in 2010/11.

Following promotion to the Championship Painter lost his place in the side following the signing of former England international Wayne Bridge.

He had been limited to just three appearances this season and his game against Preston North End on Saturday for the Cherries was his first appearance since November.

Painter told afcb.co.uk

“I have two champions medals so I am confident at this level, I have played a number of games at this level and a good number of games in the Championship…’

‘…When he (Wayne Bridge) got injured I played but unfortunately for me he hasn`t been injured much this season, so that`s why I`ve only played three games.

“It`s a great opportunity for me to come (on loan) and play games, and for me to help Bournemouth and hopefully for Bournemouth to help me play the games and get my name back out there.”
