Eddie Howe is hoping to add permanent signings rather than too many loan signings. Manager Eddie Howe is hoping to limit the number of loan signings at Dean Court next season, opting for possible permanent signings to boost team spirit in the squad. Howe is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "We haven’t used the loan market too much this season because of constraints but, hopefully, we should have full use of it next season. We will probably have more players available to us because we have gone up a league and we are more attractive to say Premier League players who will be looking to gain some experience so that will be of use to us. But if you try to learn from your experiences, the loan market isn’t something we would want to use too often. Trying to keep your numbers low and using a core squad of contracted players is definitely the way I would prefer to go. You get the team spirit and togetherness because all the players are with you from the start of the season".
