Bournemouth midfielder set for Wigan loan

Emerson Hyndman is said to be considering a loan move to Wigan Athletic in the Championship, according to The Sun. Emerson played in the last game of the season for Bournemouth away at Burnley in a 1-0 win, but has found first team football hard to come by with the Cherries since his loan move ended at Rangers in the summer last year.
Emerson looks to join Wigan on loan.
The choice to send Hyndman out on loan would indicate that Emerson is not considered ready yet to force his way into this Bournemouth team, and while that might be so I do wonder why Emerson was not loaned out last season? He certainly will know everything he has to about how AFCB play and what they require of him, and yet last January he could have gone out on loan then rather than find himself waiting for a game at the end of the season.

No doubt, Hydman's place will be taken by David Brooks who is thought to be imminently signing for AFCB from Sheffield United for a fee reported to be around £11.5m. For a Championship player it is a high price to pay if he is not going to get games and the tale of Emerson would perhaps be a warning to AFCB fans that not every player that is plucked from the Championship will turn out like Lewis Cook.

Howe seems to have accepted that recruitment at AFCB is not going to be an exact science even if the best possible considerations are made to try and limit the risks before players are bid for. Hyndman may still play extremely well for a team like Wigan as he did at Rangers, but if he doesn't fit in well enough to the Bournemouth way of playing it's best to see if he can enjoy his career elsewhere and perhaps get a permanent move away or acquire the kind of qualities that Howe wants at AFCB.

Hyndman was a big player for Fulham before he signed for the Cherries, so it seems hard on him that he is now trying to recover that playing career back in the Championship while Fulham are no going to be battling with AFCB in the Premier League. I wish Hyndman all the best, but I do want future signings to fair better if they come to AFCB. Can I get excited about the potential signing of David Brooks? Not really, until I see whether he is capable of making the grade. Unfortunately, it seems Hyndman has not made the grade so far.

In other news, Bournemouth striker Mikael Ndjoli could be set to join Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock on loan.
