CHERRIES boss Eddie Howe says he has no immediate plans to bolster his squad ahead of the loan window closing next week.

Clubs have until 5pm on Thursday to draft in any emergency loans before the transfer window reopens after the season has ended.

But Howe, who completed the permanent signings of Lee Camp, Adam Smith and Yann Kermorgant in January, says he is happy with his squad.

He told the Daily Echo: “At this moment in time, I have no plans to either make additions to the squad or lose anybody from it.

“Time will tell if that changes due to injuries but I am happy with the squad and am happy with where we stand. We have good strength in depth and our bench is very strong so I think we are in a good place.”

Howe’s resources were boosted for the midweek trip to Charlton when defender Elliott Ward returned following a seven-week injury absence. And new recruit Smith was given his first taste of action since his move from Spurs when he came on as a second-half substitute at The Valley.

“We were pleased to have Elliott back,” said Howe. “He is an important member of our squad, a good player and very experienced.

“It was good to see Adam on the pitch. We really like him so to see him out there for the first time in his second spell with us was good.”

As I see it the season is over, so no need to loan players, Time i think to try something different. Bring in the attackers lets see if we can score goals.

Saw the headlines today....
David Cameron today warned that anyone who was directly linked to the 'destabilsation of Ukraine' could face an EU travel ban or asset freeze.
The Prime Minster said he had not ruled out anyone when asked if it could apply to Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich.
Is Maxim on this list too,? is that why Howe is trying to keep the wage bill down.?
