​Bournemouth boss Howe admits loan possible for Bradford target Surridge

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe believes another loan could be on the cards for Sam Surridge.

The 20-year-old is back from his spell at Oldham, where he netted 12 goals in 20 matches in League Two.

But clubs such as Oxford United and Bradford want to take him for the rest of the season. And Cherries boss Howe admits it is a possibility.

Quizzed on Surridge, Howe told the Daily Echo: "That's a very difficult question to answer [on him going back out on loan]. We will wait and see.

"I've been pleased with him and the loan spell has had a positive effect, which is not always the case.

"My recent experiences have been that we have had more negative reactions from loan spells than positive.

"It depends on the individual. Sam played and scored goals. He's feeling good about himself and that has shown in his training here.

"There are a lot of admirers out there which is only good for him and us.

"He has built his profile to a level where people are aware of him and talking about him, which is the beauty of the loan spell."
