Howe: Cargill is not going anywhere

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes that youth team graduate Baily Cargill is good enough to compete with the first team squad.

The 19 year old centre back enjoyed first team football last season with Welling in the Conference and Torquay United in League Two during two separate loan spells.

So far during pre-season Cargill has been part of Eddie Howe's first team squad, making the trip to Austria and has so far impressed.

With Elliott Ward recovering from a knee operation at the end of last season, it may have been expected that Howe would bring in a new signing to strengthen the defensive positions. However so far Howe has handed the responsibility to Cargill and the manager remains impressed.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

'...The biggest compliment I can pay him so far is that he looks like he should be part of our squad. He hasn`t looked out of place in one training session.

"He is very composed on the ball, he is technically very good and he reads the game well for such a young player. I think he has a bright future ahead of him, providing he continues to keep the attitude he has shown."

"...He is not going anywhere at the moment because our fit centre-halves are Steve Cook and Tommy Elphick and, as we speak, Baily is next in line.

"Hopefully, Elliott Ward will regain his fitness soon and we will have four very good centre-halves. In terms of loan periods for Baily, it is not high on my agenda to see him go out at this moment in time."
