Fraser: I'm a different player now

Fraser: I'm a different player now

AFC Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is pleased with the way his game has developed since joining the club from Scottish side 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 only made a further four substitute appearances, before the end of the season.

But since the Cherries promotion to the Championship, the Scottish winger has broken his way into the first team and has really enjoyed a breakthrough season on the south coast.

Overall he made 41 appearances during the season, scoring 4 goals and has also stepped up to the Scotland Under 21's squad where he has also scored.

Fraser told afcb.co.uk...

"I would probably say I`m a different player to this time last year, I`ve had less injuries than when I first signed and worked every day with the gaffer, who has given me advice to change my game.

"Before, I used to stay wide and wait for the ball to come to me and then take a defender on.

"But now I try and mix up my game and make things happen. It`s all about being more confident and believing in myself, which is something the gaffer has helped me with.

"Also, I feel like I`m much fitter, stronger and faster. I just feel like I have improved all round...'
