Daniels 'reluctant' to highlight impact of Bournemouth signings

Bournemouth fullback Charlie Daniels hopes fans don't forget their former stalwarts.

With Eddie Howe bringing in household names like England international Jack Wilshere and club-record signing Jordon Ibe, Daniels reluctantly admitted Cherries had taken things to another level.

Daniels told the Daily Echo: “I think we have added some real quality.

“Signing a couple of England internationals at their respective levels has really raised the bar but we still expect them to play our way with that high tempo and aggression which we showed at the weekend.

“I like the way Jordon is starting to put his stamp on things, he is really getting to know our game and improving with every match and Jack slotted on nicely so I feel we are better as a squad.

“It is painful to admit that in a way because the lads that have left are not only my mates but top players as well.

“But football is a business and whatever the reasons are when people move on, that is just the way it goes. We all know that.

“What I would say is those players have been integral and a massive part in getting this club to where it is.

“We should never lose sight of what they did for us."
