​Bournemouth boss Howe delighted with loanee Ofoborh

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe only has positive words regarding youngster Nnamdi Ofoborh.

The youngster has gone out on loan to Wycombe Wanderers in the Football League.

He made his League One debut as a substitute against Lincoln City, and then got a start against Gillingham.

Speaking about those games and Ofoborh, Howe told the Daily Echo: "I'm delighted for Nnamdi because he came on in the game when the result was in the balance and saw his team home, so that was great to see.

"He's an incredible lad. I've got so much time for Nnamdi and I really, really hope he does well in his loan period.

"He's got a great way about him. He's a happy lad and he's very popular in the dressing room with us already.

"I think experienced pros want him to do well just because of his nature and his character, which is really nice to see.

"He's also a winner and I think the beauty of Nnamdi is he's probably, when he's here, the player that stays out the longest. He's the last off the training pitch pretty much every day and that's great credit to him.

"I think with that mindset he can go a long way."
