EDDIE Howe admitted there would be no “quick-fix” to get Arnaut Danjuma back up to full speed.

The Cherries boss this week revealed the winger had suffered a stress fracture in his foot which is set to keep him out of action.

Danjuma has been referred to Aspetar, a world-renowned orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital based in the Qatari capital of Doha.

The Netherlands international has been restricted to just nine top-flight appearances this season, following his £13.7million summer switch from Club Brugge.

Giving an update on Danjuma, Howe said: “He is in Aspetar getting treatment, which is probably a good thing for him.

“A change of environment, getting brilliant treatment out there and being seen on a one-on-one level with our physiotherapists and their top-quality surgeons.

“He is getting the best treatment and we hope he will be back sooner rather than later.

“It will be a period of time with him. I don’t think there’s going to be a quick-fix for him, unfortunately.

“They are very difficult injuries to manage it’s all going to be about taking slow steps.”
