Bournemouth youngster Baily Cargill wants to make a first team impression next season

Bournemouth AFC player huddle

The 19-year old is opposed to a loan move and feels he has something to offer the Premier League new boys.

Breaking into the first-team setup last summer, Cargill featured in every game as the Cherries’ progressed to the League Cup quarter-final and also made an appearance in the 5-1 FA Cup victory over Rotherham.

League appearances were not forthcoming however, with Eddie Howe preferring his more experienced centre-backs in the Championship.

Cargill doesn’t appear to be put off by this though and believes he has what it takes to secure a regular starting spot in the Cherrie’s debut Premier League campaign.

"I think I've got a great opportunity to earn a spot here so that's what I want to do,” he said in an interview with the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

"I don't think a loan move is on my mind at the minute. I want to try and play for Bournemouth – I don't want to go out on loan.”

He spoke on the difficulty of the task ahead but expressed his confidence in his own ability to force his way into Howe's first team plans.

"I'm still young and I still have a lot of time to go in my career but the sooner I start playing more often, the better for me. But I have got to work hard because I have some really good defenders ahead of me.

"I think our style of play will fit in well in the Premier League and I think it would suit me as a player. My composure is a big part of my game and, hopefully, I would fit in well."

The Bournemouth faithful will be hoping the club’s move to the Premier League, and the trappings that come with it, don’t have too detrimental an effect on the promotion of young talent already on the books.

With rumours abound linking established Premier League stars such as Tom Huddlestone, as per the Hull Daily Mail, to Dean Court, it’s imperative The Cherries don’t abandon the approach that has served them so well thus far.
