Bournemouth's six loan players have all returned to their respective parent clubs after their deals came to an end.

Reading quartet Jem Karacan, James Henry, Alex Pearce and Scott Goldbourne all return to the Madjeski Stadium while Jean Christophe re-joins Portsmouth and Max Gradel goes back to Leicester.

The loss of the players will be a massive blow to the Cherries - who lie second from bottom in League One - but the club have revealed they will be looking to agree deals to bring at least two of the players back to the Dean Court for another spell.

A club spokesman said: "Kevin (Bond) is trying to sort something out with two clubs to bring back Gradel and Christophe and with the next game 10 days away their is a possibility they will be coming back.

"And although the injury situation is improving I'm sure if he can get the Reading players back he will do."
