AFC Bournemouth have requested that Ryan Fraser not feature in Scotland’s European Championship qualifier against Kazakhstan.

That’s according to the Daily Record, who write that Fraser will be left out due to his previous injury problems and the conditions in Kazakhstan.

The match is scheduled to take place at the Astana Arena next Thursday, which boasts an artificial pitch.

That would not be beneficial to the 25-year-old, who suffered cruciate ligament damage in 2015 and is therefore considered susceptible to further knee injury.

The Wideman, who made his international debut against England in the summer of 2017, will be allowed to feature for the Tartan Army against San Marino.

Fraser has been in fantastic form for the Cherries this season, scoring six goals and providing 10 assists in the Premier League.

His form has helped place Eddie Howe’s men 12th in the table with eight matches to play, and the winger’s trickery will be crucial to the club’s aim of finishing as high as possible come May.
