Bournemouth defender Rhoys Wiggins admits he is "absolutely gutted" after confirming he has been forced to retire due to injury.
The 30-year-old has endured three operations, numerous injections and countless hours of rehabilitation having suffered a serious knee injury while on-loan at Birmingham City in October 2016. "I have been battling for the last two years, doing everything possible to get back out there, but my knee just won’t allow me to do so," he wrote in an emotional open letter to the club’s supporters. Wiggins signed on a permanent basis for the Cherries following a successful loan spell back in 2009/10 and was a regular starter before he left to join Championship side Charlton Athletic where his spent three-years plying his trade. Then, after a brief spell at Sheffield Wednesday, Wiggins came full circle and returned to the south coast although he was unable to break into the first-team. He joined Birmingham on a short-term loan deal but was injured in his first start for the club, a setback he never recovered from. May 25 - 6:19 AM
