Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: I won't panic buy in January

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is adamant he has total faith in his players to play their way to safety.

The Cherries have gone six games without a win in the Premier League, a run which has seen them drop to 16th place, just a point above the relegation zone.

But Howe says he will only enter the transfer market in January if injuries make it necessary.

He said: "At the moment, we are not looking at anything [in January]. If we keep the squad together, pick up results then everything changes.

"In January it's a very difficult window to make too many changes in terms of incomings. It's an incredibly expensive market with not too many players to choose from.

"Ideally, we wouldn't be doing too much in that market. Of course, injuries would force your hand to a degree but we are hopeful injuries suffered by the players aren't serious. We need to be adaptable so it's not impossible."
