FLYING full-back Jack Stacey insisted there was “a lot of improvement still to come” for him at Cherries – and he wants to give Eddie Howe’s side more of an attacking edge.

The talented defender, who today celebrates his 24th birthday, has registered two assists from his 12 top-flight games in his breakthrough Premier League season.

And the former Luton star, who did score in a pre-season friendly against Lazio back in August, is eager to provide an influential option going forward.

He told the club website: “I’ve got two assists so far and perhaps as a right-back you don’t come out and say that you want to score.

“I’m more focused on clean sheets, defending and winning games but I know the next milestone for me is trying to help the team when going forwards as much as possible and if that’s through goals and assists then I’ll be delighted.

“I’ve definitely adapted and with the more games you play and with the run of games I’ve had in the team it has really helped me to bed in and improve as a player.

“From that first game against Everton (in September) I think I’ve improved a lot and there’s a lot of improvement still to come.”
