Howe: We are re-assessing Daniels

Howe: We are re-assessing Daniels

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe may opt to use the loan market if left back Charlie Daniels is set to be out longer than first thought.

The full back had been suffering with a persistent foot problem which had been causing his discomfort for a number of weeks.

He had been playing through the pain barrier, but was forced out of the side with Howe forced to shuffle his defensive options.

At stadium:mk Howe decided to play Dan Seaborne at left back, with stand-in captain Tommy Elphick and Steve Cook playing at centre back and Simon Francis completing the back four at right back.

But following Elphick's injury that forced Seaborne to move into the centre back role and left the Cherries with no recognised left back's in the squad following Jon Meades' season long loan to AFC Wimbledon.

New signing Matt Ritchie, predominantly known as a right winger has been standing in for Daniels on a short term basis, but Howe has stated that if Daniels is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines then he will make a move in the transfer market.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We are waiting to see how Charlie (Daniels) settles down over the weekend before re-assessing him on Monday. We haven`t been able to push him on with his rehab so are a little concerned about him at the moment...'

'...It has been an area of concern for a while in terms of our full-back cover even when we had both full-backs fit. We are fortunate to have brought in Matt Ritchie and he is able to play there. But I think we would need a recognised left-back if Charlie were to be out long term.

"I thought Matt (Ritchie) was excellent, both with and without the ball. To come to a new club and play out of position is not easy but he has done it with no problems. He has accepted it and is a real team player. That is really pleasing for the future, regardless of where he plays."
