AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves has been pleased with the acquisitions that he has been able to make over the course of the summer.
The Cherries have signed ten new players since the end of last season and have also added loanee Lee Barnard to the squad from Southampton.
Young Liechtenstein international Goalkeeper Benjamin Büchel, is expected to join the development squad, whilst Groves has boosted his options in the centre of defence with new captain Miles Addison from Derby and former Brighton defender Tommy Elphick.
Left back Jonathan Meades joined following his release from Cardiff City, whilst midfielder Eunan O'Kane joined from Torquay, Richard Hughes came out of retirement and free agent Lorenzo Davids joined the club on transfer deadline day.
Up front and Lewis Grabban joined from Rotherham, Josh McQuoid returned from Millwall and Frank Demouge came in from Dutch side Utrecht.
Groves told afcb.co.uk...
"I think in the majority of the cases the players we have brought in have enhanced the group in terms of character and ability. We need to work with those players now on a regular basis to build an understanding of what is required to go forward,"
"We have recruited players that will improve the team and improve the squad, and that`s what we were looking to do."
Discussing Lorenzo Davids eagerly awaited debut Groves added...
"It will probably be about two or three weeks before he can start to make an impact,"
