Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits this season has been his toughest in the Premier League.
Bournemouth were 18th in the Premier League when football was postponed indefinitely and Howe admitted that the 2019-20 campaign had been a difficult one for him and the club.
"It is definitely our toughest year, we've been hit with a lot of injuries, missing key players like Brooks and Danjuma and that has played a huge part in our season," Howe said.
"Every club will suffer injuries and I have to take ultimate responsibility. I look forward and we have nine games to save our Premier League status and we will do everything to stay in the Premier League.
"This time of the year normally we would be heavily involved in the recruitment side. We have had loose discussions on it.
"We have been talking purely about the last nine games and earn the right to be in the Premier League and that will dictate our transfer policy more than anything else."
