Howe: There will be more quality additions

Howe: There will be more quality additions

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is hopeful that he will be able to add new faces to his Cherries squad ahead of the new Championship season.

The Cherries made their first signing of the summer this week with the free transfer of former Norwich defender Elliott Ward.

Howe had made no secret that he wants to get the balance of his squad right ahead of the new campaign, which is likely to see a few departures from Dean Court, however he is also keen to add quality to his squad.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"We need quality additions and I don`t think we need quantity. Whichever player we sign, we are trying to make sure they are going to improve the team and the squad so there will not be a huge number coming in. Hopefully, there will be more quality additions in the calibre of Elliott.

"We are aiming to build a really competitive squad and one we think can do well in the division. But it is going to be incredibly difficult because we are competing against clubs that are much bigger than ours. Hopefully, Elliott`s signing goes some way to moving in the direction we want to go..."

'...The team we had last season did really well and I would just like to give them a bit more support in terms of a few quality bodies. But, in the main, it will be the squad that did really well for us last season."
