EDDIE Howe revealed winger Harry Wilson would be sent for assessment at parent club Liverpool this week after suffering a “strange” injury to his leg.

The Wales international was not able to feature in Saturday’s 1-0 success at Chelsea due to the ongoing problem.

Wilson is the Dorset club’s top scorer this season, with six goals from 14 games in the top flight.

Asked for an update on the Wrexham-born star’s injury, Howe told the Daily Echo: “Harry’s is a strange one. He suffered a knock on his leg, a dead leg.

“But it’s swelled up and the swelling keeps returning.

“We are going to probably get him back to Liverpool this week and hope he can be back very soon.”

Former Derby and Hull loanee Wilson agreed a season-long loan to join Cherries from Anfield in the summer.

He was in attendance at Stamford Bridge with Howe’s squad.

The boss added: “Liverpool will have a look at him early in the week.

“I just think it’s the right thing to do with him obviously being contracted to Liverpool, just to check he’s okay.”
