Artur Boruc will be a Cherry at least until the end of the season

I was delighted to hear that Artur Boruc had signed an extension to his loan deal from Southampton that will keep him at AFCB until the end of the season. Artur has had a fabulous start to his loan time at Bournemouth having only lost in the Carling Cup quarter final game against Liverpool. Apart from that, Artur has on the winning side and has been instrumental in the Cherries' excellent league form of 14 games unbeaten.
Southampton give AFCB an early New Year's present.
Artur Boruc is allowed to stay at AFCB on loan.
I don't think that Southampton were that worried about Artur being out on loan this season and as he has done so well for the Cherries it would have been a big blow if he had not been able to continue his season at Dean Court. It may mean that AFCB have a better chance of reaching their objective of Premier League football in 2015-16. Artur has let in only 16 goals since arriving at Bournemouth and has kept nine clean sheets in his last 18 matches. The shot stopper joined the Cherries on 19 September 2014 and since then it has been hard for Lee Camp to get a game. 

The spine of AFCB's squad is certainly strengthened by the extension to Boruc's loan and there must be some hope that if the Cherries did win promotion they would have a good chance of securing Artur's services in the top flight. This is the one bit of business that AFCB fans can be pleased with already and if nothing else happens in the January window it will have been a pretty successful window in my opinion, but I would expect a bit of movement of some players who are not currently getting a game such as Shaun MacDonald who has made it known that he would like to play somewhere.

Meanwhile, I hear that Charlie Daniels has signed a new contract keeping him at the club until summer 2017.

Breaking News: The Daily Mail reports that AFCB have had a £1.5m bid for 18-year old, winger, Demarai Gray at Birmingham City turned down.
