It looks like being a very happy few weeks for Oldham Athletic’s striker, Sam Surridge, after returning to the first team from injury he’s now penned a new deal at his parent club.
The 20-year old, who arrived at Boundary Park in the summer, will remain at Bournemouth until the summer of 2021.
He’s due to remain with Latics until the end of the season but recently missed a month of football after picking up a leg injury.
It came at the wrong time for the forward, who’d bagged nine goals in as many games for Oldham Athletic but has failed to find the back of the net since returning.
Speaking to Bournemouth’s official website, Surridge said: “It’s a nice feeling and I’m really pleased.”
“I’ve been doing well out on loan and it’s almost like being rewarded for what I’ve been doing and it’s going well so far.”
“I scored quite a few goals in my first few months and I felt sharp and was really enjoying my football. Unfortunately, I suffered an injury and didn’t play for five weeks, but I played 90 minutes in the FA Cup on Saturday.”
“I need to get fit and over the injury, it’s ok having your leg feel ok but getting that sharpness back is key really. But it’s been a really good experience so far and I’m enjoying it.”
It’s not the first time Surridge has been out on loan, he spent last season at Yeovil Town.
