England waiting for Bournemouth striker Solanke to catch fire - Boothroyd

England U21 boss Aidy Boothroyd has faith in Dominic Solanke.

The young attacker completed a big money move to Bournemouth, signing for roughly £17.5million in January.

However, he has not scored a goal in ten games since signing for the Cherries.

But Boothroyd still has faith in Solanke, as evidenced by his selection as the main striker at the under-21 European Championships this summer.

And he believes the player will come good at club level as well.

He told the Daily Echo: "He is a huge player for us. He is a really talented guy and I am glad he has got his career going again. I think he will do really well at Bournemouth.

"We think an awful lot of him and I have done for a number of years.

"He is very calm, he is very composed, he is very talented and he will get goals, I am sure. He certainly has done for us and he has done very well.

"We are waiting for him to catch fire really. It is only a matter of time. He is such a talented player."
