Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is not about to break the bank by launching into a massive summer spending spree.
“It is very difficult to predict. I say that before every transfer window,” the Cherries boss said when asked about what business might be done in the summer.
“You can have your plans in place and thoughts and aims and things can surprise you. Hopefully there will be no negative surprises for us.”
Howe added at a press conference: “I want to keep the squad together. I want to keep our best players. I want to try to add quality, if we can, to the group, and if we can do that it will be another good window for us.
“Continuity is important to us. If you have players with good attitudes and ability, and they are the right age, then keep them together.
“I think the difficulty for us is when we bring new players in, for the new players to understand our philosophy and to quickly adapt to how we play.
“I think there is a period where players need to adjust and understand that process so too many changes to the squad I don’t think is good for our dynamics, so we will see.”
