Andrew Surman joins Cherries

Norwich City midfielder Andrew Surman has joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan.

Andrew Surman fires Norwich into the lead against Bolton
Andrew Surman had a loan spell at Bournemouth in the 2005-06 season.

Surman, 26, joined the Canaries from Wolves in 2010 but has been allowed to play for Championship newcomers Bournemouth for the coming campaign.

He told the Daily Echo: “I was out for quite a while last season with injury and, coming into this season, new players came in at Norwich and the squad was quite big so I knew I was probably going to be moving on or possibly getting a loan move.

“The main thing for me is the possibility of playing games. I need to play games wherever I am but there is an extra advantage with Bournemouth because I have been here before and I know the area quite well.”

Norwich secured back-to-back promotions to reach the Premier League in 2011 and Surman hopes the Cherries can replicate that success.

“Anything can happen,” he said. “When I first joined Norwich, people were saying they had done well to get out of League One and were asking whether we would settle for finishing just above the relegation zone. It shows what can happen.

“There are some good teams in the league but the best teams don’t always necessarily win the league or get promoted. If you can gain a bit of momentum, you never know where it might take you. You have to go into it positively and aim for the top.”
