JASON Tindall is still keen to add "two or three" players to his Cherries squad, but insisted: "We're in no panic right now."

Tindall has yet to sign anybody since taking over as Cherries boss last month.

Meanwhile, many players have left the club with Harry Arter the latest to depart last night, following the likes of Aaron Ramsdale, Nathan Ake, Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, Andrew Surman, Simon Francis, Jordon Ibe and Artur Boruc in exiting over the summer.

And while Tindall remains hopeful of adding to his squad before next month's transfer deadline, he doesn't want to rush into any deals.

Asked if COVID-19 restrictions on football were having any financial bearing on his ability to bring players to the club, Tindall told the Daily Echo: "No, that’s certainly not having any impact on that. As I’ve said before, in terms of bringing players in, first of all you want to bring players in that can influence and make a difference to your team.

"We are trying. We’re working hard in the background, but we’re in no rush, we’re in no panic.

"We’ve got a good squad and it’s important the players that do come into the football club are going to help the team.

"We’re working in the background, but there’s no rush. The window is still open for a couple more weeks and the loan market is still available to us. We’re in no panic right now."

Quizzed on if he feels the size of his squad could cope with the upcoming rigours of the Championship season, Tindall added: "I want to add to the squad, I’ve made that clear. I want to bring in two or three players to give us that strength in depth.

"But as you’ve seen, even from the younger guys that played against Crystal Palace, they came in and they performed exceptionally well.

"So if the window was to shut tomorrow and we had no new faces in the building, would I be disappointed? If it’s not possible to do that, then I wouldn’t want to just bring in faces just to add numbers.

"I don’t think that’s right and I don’t want to do that. I want to bring in bodies and faces that are going to make a difference and if we can do that then great, if we can’t then we’ll continue the way we are."
