AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes it is an important time for attacker Josh McQuoid.

The 24 year old Northern Ireland International is in the final year of his contract at Dean Court and has returned to the south coast following a half season loan spell with League One side Coventry City.

McQuoid joined Mohamed Coulibaly and Ryan Allsop at Coventry, with the trio all joining as part of the deal to bring striker Callum Wilson to the Cherries.

Much like Coulibaly, McQuoid had his loan spell cut short after failing to feature as often as hoped.

Due to the rules regarding loan players, McQuoid had missed out on the match day squad a number of times due to the five loan player rule and then he suffered an Achilles complaint which ended his loan.

Howe now believes it’s a crucial time for McQuoid to show his talent, with just a few months remaining on his current contract.

Howe told the Daily Echo

“Josh injured his Achilles and wasn`t going to feature before his loan ended so returned here to have treatment.

‘We will wait and see what happens when he is fit. It is an important stage of Josh`s career. He is contracted to us until the summer so these are big moments for him.

‘If he is not going to feature with us then we would look to get him some loan time so he can keep moving his career forward.”
