Cherries reject Forest Stock bid
Brian Stock
Stock came up through the youth ranks at Bournemouth
Bournemouth have confirmed that Nottingham Forest have made an inquiry regarding midfielder Brian Stock.

The 24-year-old former Wales Under-21 international will be out of contract at Dean Court in the summer.

Cherries chairman Peter Phillips told his club's website: "Forest have been in touch with the club, but their offer does not meet our valuation."

Stock had also been the subject of interest from Swansea manager Kenny Jackett during the summer of 2005.

He has made 169 league and cup appearances since coming through the youth ranks at Bournemouth.

  • One midfielder definitely leaving Dean Court is 19-year-old Andrew Surman, who has been recalled by Southampton after his half-season loan.

    Surman, who has scored six goals in 27 league and cup appearances during his loan, will play his final game for Bournemouth at Southend on New Year's Eve.

    Cherries boss Sean O'Driscoll said: "We would have liked to have kept Drew for longer, but his form has been excellent and Southampton will have noticed that.

    "We hope he goes on to fit into what is happening at St Mary's, but that said we would also like to see him back here at some stage."
