Speculating to accumulate in the transfer window

There is an awful lot written about the Premier League clubs strengthening in this January window, but this transfer saga is perhaps even more of a headache to do something meaningful for SkyBet Championship clubs in this particular window. Eddie Howe admitted as much in not promising too much, but still offering hope when his main target is probably simply to keep his players together at the club.

Those who have made moves for players are already seeing some positives from splashing the cash. Derby spring to mind with their signing of Darren Bent on loan from Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season. He has already bagged them two important league goals against Blackburn. Middlesbrough have brought in Adam Forshaw from Wigan, while Ipswich moved for Noel Hunt from Leeds and Watford  have brought in Ben Watson from Wigan. That means just Brentford and AFCB have been quiet this window, although Bournemouth did extend Artur Boruc's loan until the end of the season.
Will AFCB have any new players to join Artur Boruc at Dean Court?
Looking at the Cherries it is difficult to see where you would strengthen, but there is always need of more goals and my only worry is if Callum Wilson has an injury. The gap may just have to be filled by Brett Pitman and Tokelo Rantie if that happens and the luxury of bringing in another striker may just be too difficult at this point, but considering where the team might be in May it could become a lot easier then.
