Howe: Matthews is getting better every day

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes that Sam Matthews could well be the best 16 year old he has ever seen.

The Cherries youngster, who has previously 'caught the eye' of Manchester United and Fulham signed his first professional contract with the club earlier this week.

As a 16 year old the deal is on a scholarship basis until he turns 17 in March when it becomes a two year professional contract.

Matthews who is an attacking midfielder and often operates as a winger has also joined up with the Cherries first team for the pre-season trip to Switzerland this week and could feature against FC Zurich this evening.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'Without wanting to put too much pressure on him, he is as good a 16-year-old as I have seen during my time working in football, so I think he has got a very good chance...'

"...He is highly regarded in English football and a lot of Premier League clubs have looked at Sam, so it was a big signature for us."

"Sam is a very talented young player. He is training with the first team and is certainly not looking out of place. He is getting better every day with the experience of training with the lads and being around good professionals...'
