Cherries Chairman, Eddie Mitchell, wants to keep the current squad intact for next season. Eddie Mitchell has spoken out about potential player sales, being quoted as saying that he wants to keep the current squad intact. He is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "The boys have done fantastically. I’m sure there will be people trying to prise one or two out of us and I think probably one or two trying to prise the managerial staff out of us. But at this moment in time, we’re not selling. The club has always been a selling club. But we want to stabilise the club and not sell our best assets. We think we can take them further. It wouldn’t be right to keep people back who can propel themselves further up the divisions, such as Brett perhaps. But by and large they are a young squad and there is plenty of time for that to happen. I think Eddie is the best guy to teach them how to get further up the ladder and when they are a bit further on, we might release them to go further. But at the moment, they are contracted and they are staying".
