Bournemouth's transfers rated

2015-09-02 12:21

Cape Town - Bournemouth have a real chance of staying up after some fine transfer work by manager Eddie Howe.

Bournemouth's transfers rated: 8/10

Eddie Howe might be the new "wheeler dealer" in town after securing several deals, none more shrewd than bringing in Glenn Murray on deadline day or signing Max Gradel.

Transfer summary:

In: Artur Boruc (Southampton, free), Josh King (Blackburn, free), Adam Federici (Reading, free), Christian Atsu (Chelsea, loan), Sylvain Distin (Everton, free) Tyrone Mings (Ipswich, £8m), Max Gradel (St Etienne, undisclosed), Lee Tomlin (Middlesbrough, £3m), Filippo Costa (Chievo, loan), Glenn Murray (Crystal Palace, £5m), Joe Bennett (Aston Villa, loan). Tomas Andrade (River Plate, loan)

Out: Ian Harte (released), Josh McQuoid (released), Joe Partington (released), Mohamed Coulibaly (released), Miles Addison (released), Darryl Flahavan (released), Jayden Stockley (Portsmouth, loan), Brett Pitman (Ipswich, undisclosed), Ryan Fraser (Ipswich, loan), Jayden Stockley (Portsmouth, loan), Stephane Zubar (York City, loan), Harry Cornick (Yeovil, loan)

Best bit of business: Howe added proven Premier League talent (think Boruc and Distin) and brought in some exciting players like Atsu and Gradel.

Worst bit of business: Failing to sell Stephane Zubar outright.
