JAMIE Redknapp admits he “fears” for Cherries after they suffered relegation from the Premier League.

Eddie Howe’s men were left to contemplate an 18th-placed finish in the top flight with 34 points from 38 games.

Despite beating Everton 3-1 on the final day of the season on Sunday, Aston Villa’s 1-1 draw with West Ham was enough to send Cherries back to the second tier.

And former Cherries youngster Redknapp believes some of the club’s key players are bound to move on this summer.

Writing in the Daily Mail, the former England midfielder said: “I love Bournemouth. It’s where I grew up and spent my formative years.

“But now they’re out of the Premier League and I fear for my former club.

“Callum Wilson is bound to be sold this summer. Nathan Ake may leave, too, while I’m sure someone will be looking to snap up David Brooks. Can they make a comeback from the Championship?

“It was a miracle when Eddie Howe did it the first time and it would take another for them to return.”

Redknapp made his league debut for Cherries at the age of 16 and appeared for the club 21 times in all competitions.

He went on to feature for Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton as well as winning 17 senior caps for England.
