With the Cherries having, over the years, a good number of top quality left backs, Eddie Howe is tipping Charlie Daniels to be next to add his name to that list.
Howe is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I was aware of Charlie when he was at Leyton Orient. We played them a few times and he always impressed us. He was a very attacking left-back who always looked to get forward. I watched him a few times in his younger days at Tottenham when he was a left-winger and he has adapted well. He still has an attacking intent to his game but his defending has been good as well. Charlie has certainly got a lot going for him and I have been impressed with him so far in the games since we have been here. He has a good understanding with Marc Pugh and they have worked very well together. Hopefully, there will be more to come from Charlie as the season progresses".
Howe went on to say: "We have been very fortunate down the years to have had some excellent players in that position and Charlie is certainly heading in the right direction to join them. Paul Morrell was the first one I used to watch and he was outstanding. He was probably slightly different to the more recent ones but was always solid and reliable and made numerous appearances. In my time as a player, Jamie Vincent was probably the stand-out performer. He had a brilliant left foot and Mel Machin would always encourage him to get forward. He was a very modern full-back and probably ahead of his time. Latterly, both Warren Cummings and Rhoys Wiggins have kept up the tradition and the players all represented the club really well".
