Howe pleased with progress of Bournemouth duo Surridge, Butcher

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is pleased with the progress on-loan of youngsters Sam Surridge and Matt Butcher.

Surridge is midway through a season-long loan with Yeovil and has also spent time at Weymouth and Poole.

Midfielder Butcher is currently with his parent club but enjoyed a stint at Yeovil last season.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "I'm pleased with them. They have earned their new deals. It's very difficult when you go to the lower leagues as we found when we were that club taking players on loan.

"A lot of young lads you get in from Premier League clubs can find the transition difficult but I am really pleased that these players have gone out, done the hard yards, performed well to this point and shown great attitudes while doing it."
