No transfer rush for Eddie
Eddie Howe says he will wait to see the extent of Joshua King's injury before looking to add to Bournemouth's squad this month.
The Norwegian missed Monday's 2-2 draw at Brighton due to a hamstring problem and it is still to be decided how long he will be sidelined.
Ryan Fraser is also suffering with a similar issue and also appears touch and go as to when he will be back fit, with it likely to be an issue that requires regular management.
With Jermain Defoe out for two months due to an ankle problem, Howe's options could be limited but for now he remains calm, insisting he is in no rush to head straight into the January sales.
"If we're confident we can get these players back quickly then I don't see the need," he told BBC Radio Solent. "We need to see how serious these injuries are. We're not sure of the full extent for Joshua if he is out for the short or long term.
"Ryan felt some tightness after the win against Everton, he wasn't comfortable being involved today (against Brighton), so there was no point risking a really serious injury.
"He has had problems historically with his hamstrings."
