Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes youngster Danny Ings has a bright future at the club.
Ings was rewarded with a new deal which will keep him at Dean Court until 2012 after impressing on loan at Dorchester, and Howe is pleased with the forward`s progress.
"I`ve been really impressed with Danny on a number of levels," he told the Bournemouth Echo.
"He went to Dorchester, which is a tough league and really physically demanding and he did really well for them and scored a number of goals.
"I`ve also been impressed by how he`s trained. He has come back to us and been really bright and really sharp.
"He`s showed a really good attitude and determination to kick on and succeed in professional football, so we`re delighted to extend his contract and we feel he`s got the potential to improve in the next couple of years."
