Bournemouth boss Howe won't rush Wilshere introduction

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is reluctant to rush Jack Wilshere's introduction.

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder came on as a substitute during Saturday's home meeting with West Brom and helped his side to a 1-0 win.

"With the outstanding quality he has, there's no doubt about that. We'd like to see him in the team as quickly as possible," Howe said.

"It's a delicate balance between rushing him into the team and the long term. We have to think of that. We want him to play a lot of games for us so we'll put him in when we think it's right.

"I've been really pleased. I thought he had a big impact when he came on at a time in the game when the game was in the balance, really.

"We had lost the full control we had had in the first half and I thought he wrestled that back for us. It was a big contributing factor to us winning the game."
