Howe: Slow build up for Fraser
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said that the Cherries will take their time regarding new signing Ryan Fraser's injury.
The Cherries signed 18 year old Ryan Fraser from Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen in a surprise move in January.
Fraser had previously turned down a new contract offer at Pittodrie and was set to be out of contract at the end of that season.
Fraser had been linked with Premier League side Swansea and Championship side Huddersfield Town before the Cherries and Aberdeen agreed an undisclosed fee for the Scotland Under 19's international.
He signed a three and a half year deal at Dean Court but has struggled with a hip problem and has only recently returned to training.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"Ryan has made good progress over the past couple of days. He has been running on the grass and getting a feel for the ball again.
"At the moment, it is good news with him. But it is a delicate injury and we are not planning to have him any time soon. I think it is going to be a slow build up to get him back in with us."
