Cherries sign Best and Ainsworth
Leon Best
Best will initially spend a month with the Cherries
Bournemouth boss Sean O'Driscoll has completed the loan signing of forwards Leon Best and Lionel Ainsworth.

Best, 19, has joined the Cherries from south coast neighbours Southampton, initially on a month's loan with a view to extending his stay.

Meanwhile, 18-year-old Ainsworth has moved to Dean Court from Derby County in a deal lasting until 1 January 2007.

Ainsworth arrived at Bournemouth last week, and played in Saturday's 4-0 friendly defeat by Portsmouth.

Best made his Saints debut on his 18th birthday in September 2004, and has made eight first-team appearances for them in the last two seasons.

He has also served QPR on loan - and had two loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday last season.

But with seven strikers in Saints' first team squad, he has been allowed to gain League One experience with Bournemouth.
