AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe hopes that Cherries midfielder Harry Arter will be available from the first pre-season training session.

Arter struggled with injury throughout the 2015/16 campaign, eventually missing the UEFA European Championship with the Republic of Ireland.

Arter suffered a thigh injury the day before the Republic of Ireland’s friendly against Belarus and due to that injury Martin O’Neill opted against including Arter in the squad.

The injury set back was yet another disappointment on the pitch for Arter, who over the past 12 months has also struggled with hip and Achilles problems.

Howe told the Daily Echo

“We hope he will be able to join in from day one and he will be fine.

“We hope there are no adverse effects from his withdrawal from the international scene. It was only a minor injury so we consider him to be fit.”

(the injury) supposed to be a minor injury – 10 days or a little more. That being the case, nothing to worry about. The only nagging thing is if the injury to his thigh was caused by him compensating for his other more long term issues he has prizes just by having your say on the articles, polls and forums, click the link to register.
