Bournemouth boss Howe: Lerma debut against MK Dons

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says Jefferson Lerma will make his debut against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup.

The £25m summer signing has not yet featured during Bournemouth's unbeaten start to the Premier League season, and was an unused substitute in Saturday's thrilling 2-2 home draw with Everton.

"Jefferson [Lerma] will play," Howe said ahead of the visit of Paul Tisdale's Dons.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him play here and hopefully he'll do what he's done in training. He's been really impressive so far, so that is a mouth-watering prospect.

"It's great to be able to give him this opportunity to play at home to get used to that feeling.

"As I say, he's done well in training, he's showing all the attributes we wanted, so it'll be interesting to see how he fits into the team, how his team-mates interact with him during the match and all those things that we're looking for."
