Latics lose out on Cummings

Bournemouth defender Warren Cummings was on John Sheridan's shopping list but he has missed out as the highly rated full back has decided to accept a new deal at Dean Court. Cummings (26) was a free agent and signed a two year deal with the option of another year.

He said, "Financially I would have been better off moving, there's no question about it. But you've got to weigh up a lot of things and the grass isn't always greener. I've got a sense of loyalty towards the club which looked after me and this is a great part of the world to live and work. And with regard to what the manager (Kevin Bond) said to me, in my opinion this club has got a good future for the first time in two or three years."
