AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said he is delighted with the progress made by Ryan Fraser since his move from Aberdeen.
The Cherries signed Ryan Fraser as an 18 year old from Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen in a surprise move in January 2013.
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 went on to play a bit part role in the Cherries League One promotion winning campaign, making his debut as a substitute in the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United in February 2013.
He made a further four substitute appearances, before the end of the season. But since the Cherries promotion from the Championship, the Scottish winger has broken his way into the first team.
Thus far this season he has made 29 appearances, scoring 3 goals and has stepped up to the Scotland Under 21's squad.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"Ryan has had a really good first year with us. When you consider how young he is, it was a big step for him to move down from Scotland and leave the comfort of his own home.
"I think he has improved in all areas of his game, technically, tactically and physically, so we are delighted. I think he has a big future ahead of him...'
'...For a young guy to be involved at Championship level like he has, it has been a huge step up physically and that is where I think we have seen the biggest development in him."
