Howe: Time will tell for Stockley
The 19 year old striker, who first broke into the first team ranks when he was 16 has enjoyed three loan spells away from the Cherries in the past.
His first move was a brief spell with Conference South side Dorchester Town, before making the move to League Two side Accrington Stanley in November 2011.
Stockley made 10 appearances, including 5 starts and scored 3 goals over a two month spell.
In November 2012 he joined Conference side Woking and spent the remainder of the season with the non-league side. He made 26 appearances in all (20 starts) and scored 10 goals.
Cherries manager Eddie Howe believes that another loan move this season could be the best option for Stockley, due to the sharp rise the club has taken over the past few years with two promotions lifting the club into the Championship this season.
Howe told BBC Radio Solent...
'What I will say about Jayden is in the loan spells he has had, he has done very well, Woking were delighted with him and as a young player I think he needed that.
'Whether he is close enough to my squad, I'm not sure, time will tell on that. If he's not, he'll go out on loan again, hopefully at a higher level.
'When Jayden first came through we were a League Two club and at that stage I would say he was pretty close to playing, but we've jumped two divisions so the demands increase and it is tougher to break in.'
