AFC Bournemouth attacker Lys Mousset will be allowed to leave the Cherries on a short term temporary move according to a report made by L`Équipe.

AFC Bournemouth completed the signing of 20 year old Lys Mousset from French club Le Havre in the summer.

Mousset made his debut for French Ligue 2 side Le Havre when he was 18 and last season he scored 14 goals in 29 appearances as Le Havre almost won promotion to the top flight of French football.

Since 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.

The report made by L`Équipe states 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’.

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?
