BOSS Eddie Howe insisted he would “reserve judgement” on Cherries’ summer transfer dealings.

Five new arrivals came through the door at Vitality Stadium with Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey, Philip Billing and Arnaut Danjuma all signing permanent deals.

The club also secured the services of Harry Wilson on loan from Liverpool for the 2019-20 campaign.

As well as incomings, Cherries also made profits on the sales of Tyrone Mings, Lys Mousset and Connor Mahoney.

Assessing the club’s transfer window as a whole, Howe said: “Let’s wait and see, let’s reserve judgement.

“I’m always a little bit worried when people say ‘what a great window’ just after it’s closed. I’d prefer people to say the same in January time, or next season.

“It doesn’t mean anything as we sit here now – it’s got to be proved in the games we have to come throughout the season.

“The players that we have signed we hope do really well for us. The players we let go we wish them all the best in their future careers.

“I am certainly looking forward to working with the new players and really getting to know them better.”

Asked whether he felt he had got all he wanted during the window, Howe replied: “I don’t think as a manager you ever totally get what you want. There are always things that maybe escaped or got away from us.

“In the main, we are well backed and well supported. It’s a real team effort here and congratulations to everybody on the effort they gave together.”
