Marc Wilson On The Move Again Before The Transfer Window Shuts

Bournemouth and Republic of Ireland defender Marc Wilson, has been told by his manager Eddie Howe, that he is free to leave the Cherries this summer if they receive the right offer.

Although the Irish defender went on loan to Bournemouth twice in 2007, he signed for them permanently from in August 2016 from Stoke City for an undisclosed fee after he fell out with manager Mark Hughes.

However, his time at the Cherries proved to be far from fruitful as he only featured three times for them, once in the FA Cup, and twice in the League Cup where he chipped in for his one and only goal for the club.

Eddie Howe is very much open to offers for the Republic of Ireland international as he told BBC Radio Solent,

“Marc may leave in this transfer window, but the club would obviously have to receive the right offer.

Wilson who can play centre back or left back went on loan in January to West Brom in hope of some more minutes but it did not get much better for the Antrim man as he only featured in four Premier League games for the Baggies.

It is believed that a fee of £1 million will prize the Irishman away from the Vitality stadium and it is rumoured that Leeds United are favourites to land the defender.


The 29-year-old was an ever present in Ireland's Euro 2016 qualifying campaign but sadly got injured before the tournament and did not travel to France as part of the squad.

Wilson will be eager for as much game time as possible, as Ireland have four crunch remaining qualifiers left for the World Cup in Russia 2018 and he will be hoping he can force his way into Martin O' Neill's plans.
