AFC Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser is no longer the teenager that made the surprising move from Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen to the third tier of English football with the Cherries.
He is now a 24-year-old Scotland international, who has made his name in the Premier League, with that transfer move fully vindicated.
Fraser has made 58 Premier League appearances since the Cherries won promotion in 2015, he has scored 9 times and claimed 9 assists.
1 of those goals and 1 of those assists have already come during this campaign, with Fraser winning the AFC Bournemouth player of the month award for August.
He is the sides in form player, looking to keep the shirt firmly in his grasp despite competition from within the squad.
Fraser is determined to not just be one of the starting XI this season, his aim is to become one of the first names on the team-sheet by making himself “the main man”.
Fraser told The Herald…
“The start to the season couldn’t have gone much better both personally and for the team, This season I have tried to make more of an impact than I have in previous seasons. I’m trying to be the main man..
“I’m 24 now and I think if I want my career to go where I do then I have to step up now instead of letting the big players change the game. I want to be the one to change games.
“I started out in League One and then Championship so to now be in the Premier League and try to be the main man there is massive.”

This player is getting better and better.
Ryan will be stinging some defences this season, when he is on top form we score goals. He says he is feeling better than ever, what a player to have. – Join the conversation, click here.
