Howe: One maybe two new signings to come

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe thinks he could make one or two more signings before the new Championship campaign begins.

However the Cherries manager is already pleased with the business that the club has conducted in the transfer market to date.

Last week the Cherries completed the signing of former Norwich City defender Elliott Ward on a free transfer and on Thursday, AFC Bournemouth also completed the signing of former Leeds and Reading left back Ian Harte, also on a free.

Both players who boast Premier League and Championship experience have signed one year deals at Dean Court.

Howe told

"Whenever we do a deal we try and look for good value in the market and, in my opinion, Elliott and Ian were two of the best free transfers available. We are delighted to be able to get them both, There are some good players out there and there is invariably always competition for their signatures, and we`ve been fortunate that we`ve been able to attract two of the players we wanted.

"It`s a real coup for the club and it should give everyone a positive feeling that we are able to attract established names that everyone knows."

"You just don`t know what is going to happen in football. You can say we are close to finishing but you never know what is round the corner, I don`t envisage many more signings, maybe one more or a maximum of two."
