US tour perfect opportunity to incorporate Bournemouth new boys – Howe

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is planning to integrate his new players into the squad during the club's upcoming pre-season tour.


The Cherries, who are preparing for their first-ever season in the Premier League, will travel to the USA for an eight-day training camp which will include a July 14 friendly with MLS club Philadelphia Union.

Howe has signed six new players already this summer and sees this trip to the US as the perfect opportunity to help Artur Boruc, Adam Federici, Joshua King, Tyrone Mings and Sylvain Distin and Christian Atsu assimilate to the group.

"We hope to integrate the new players into the squad and make them feel like Bournemouth players," he told the Daily Echo. "The aim is for people to get to know each other better so they are comfortable with each other and I think the best way to do that is to take the players away into a different environment.

"When we are in that environment, we will implement our philosophy and make sure the players are up to speed."

Bournemouth's pre-season also includes friendlies Exeter City (July 18), Nantes (July 25), Yeovil Town (July 28) and Hoffenheim (August 1).
