AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe will consider sending attacker Lys Mousset out on loan during this January transfer window.
Mousset joined the Cherries from French club Le Havre in the summer, but following his move to the south coast of England, his game time has been limited.
He’s made a total of five appearances, with all but his last appearance in the FA Cup against Millwall coming from the bench.
Prior to his start against League One side Millwall, where he played the full 90 minutes of the 3-0 defeat he had played just 81 minutes across the EFL Cup and Premier League.
Last week a report by L`Équipe stated that ‘Mousset has been given permission to leave Premier League side Bournemouth on loan’.
The report added that SC Bastia had already made an approach to AFC Bournemouth whilst ‘Montpellier are also in regular contact with the player about a possible deal’.
When asked about the possibility of a short term move, Howe told the Daily Echo…
‘Every situation would be different. You have to assess each situation on its merits.
‘With someone like Lys, it might be beneficial for him to go and get football on a loan arrangement.
‘We will wait and see and try to make the right call for us and for Lys.’
Can you not understand why a young footballer would want to be playing, or at least being given some gametime?….sometimes I do wonder why when the opportunity is there to get a player off the bench for some valuable PL matchtime we do not give it to them? I recall that Mousset was on the bench when we thrashed Hull City at home…he could have been surely so action then when we were 4-1 up?
…he must get frustrated when he sees other players floundering up front for us in games and he doesn’t get a look in? – Join the conversation here.
