AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been pleased with how goalkeeper Ryan Allsop’s loan spell with Coventry City panned out.
The 22 year old joined the League One side along with Josh McQuoid and Mohamed Coulibaly on six month loan deals as part of the transfer which saw Callum Wilson make the move to Dean Court.
Whilst Coulibaly and McQuoid failed to hold down regular starting places and ultimately returned to the south coast early, Allsop made 27 appearances, keeping 9 clean sheets.
But with injury doubts to both Arthur Boruc and Lee Camp, Allsop opted to return to Dean Court in a bid to impress manager Eddie Howe and earn a new contract rather than consider any potential loan extension.
Howe told the Daily Echo…
“I think it was a good loan for him. He experienced some highs and lows during his spell at Coventry.
“He played in front of some big crowds and was involved in their return to the Ricoh Arena.
“I think it was everything we had hoped it would be in terms of developing him and moving his game forward…’
“…Our immediate thought process will be to see how he has developed to see in training where his game stands and then make the next decision in terms of where his career is.”
