​Bournemouth boss Howe expects huge upside from Ramsdale

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is certain Aaron Ramsdale will benefit from his loan spell at Chesterfield, although it ended with the club being relegated from League Two.

The Cherries' boss believes it was the kind of experience that will help the young goalkeeper fully develop, even though it was a 'painful' one.

"First and foremost, it was a great experience for Aaron," Howe told the Daily Echo.

"And although it was also a bitterly disappointing one, it could be the making of him.

"The idea with loan players is they go and do very well but really what you are sending them out for is experience.

"They need to take it all in, feel whatever happens and realise the importance of it.

"Aaron played in League Two and for a club whose Football League status was at stake and you can't underestimate the importance of that.

"We have been there and we know so that will do him the world of good.

"It was a painful experience but I want him to use that pain as a motivation to further his career.

"We believe in his talent, we believe in the player and we believe in the personality."

Ramsdale is yet to make his debut appearance for Bournemouth.
