Promising A.F.C. Bournemouth loanee Sam Surridge is set to stay at Oldham Athletic until the end of the season despite interest from Championship side Preston North End.
Alan Nixon tweeted: “OLDHAM. BOURNEMOUTH. Young Surridge happy to see out season on loan despite rival interest to buy him in January.”
The young striker has proved to be a handful for League Two defence’s so far this season, for example, he ran Grimsby Town’s defence ragged and added two goals to his account against them. Following this, he added another brace to his name as he rescued Latics a point against Colchester United.
Sam Surridge was named Sky Bet League Two Player Of The Month for September. The Bouremouth loanee managed to notch five goals in four games in September. Sam Surridge has been showing his class for Latics, making seven appearances in all competitions and netted seven goals and is a serious contender for the best frontman in League Two.
Sam Surridge has gained plenty of first team experience over the past year, having played for the first team in pre-season and enjoying a loan spell with Yeovil Town.
The striker enjoyed a full season of first team football in 2017/18, when he signed for the Glovers in August last year.
Not only did he managed to make 53 appearances and score 10 goals as well as six assists, the forward played against Manchester United in the Emirates FA Cup at Huish Park.
Wimborne-raised Surridge played locally for Bournemouth Sports and scored plenty of goals in the Bournemouth youth team, having joined the club as a 14-year-old.
Surridge also gained first team experience with Poole Town where he was in prolific form during the 2016/17 season.
