AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe refused to rule out further signings after Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Somerset Live report that the Cherries have been one of the busier clubs in the current transfer window, which closes on January 31st.

Firstly, Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne snubbed Cardiff City to move to the South Coast on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Forward Dominic Solanke has also made the switch from Anfield to the Vitality Stadium, with the Cherries splashing a reported £19m on the 21-year-old, who won’t be available to play until February due to injury.

There has also been an outgoing, with out of favour striker Jermain Defoe moving north of the border to Rangers on an 18-month loan deal.

Bournemouth currently sit 12th in the Premier League table after 21 rounds of matches, and Howe knows that a few more additions could help the club push onto the next level.

When asked about the possibility of new recruits, he said:

It’s difficult to say with clarity, yes or no, at this point; we’re still looking at certain areas. We’re delighted players of that quality want to come to the club. I think they see a good environment, culture and a way of working that can hopefully bring out the best in players.
