Ramsdale next to go?

Aaron Ramsdale is being pursued by Sheffield United as a replacement for Dean Henderson, who has been on loan from Man United at the Yorkshire club. It would be a return to his fist club for Ramsdale and could net AFCB another high transfer fee.
It's going to be a struggle to keep hold of Aaron Ramsdale
Aaron has become a firm favourite with Bournemouth fans, so it would be gut wrenching to see him go. Sadly, I think he is destined for bigger things and even Sheffield United would only be a stepping stone for him. The youth that Eddie Howe has built so hard to get into the team is being cherry picked, and there is not a lot AFCB can do about it.

It will leave Bournemouth with Mark Travers to take over. That will still be a good basis to keep some clean sheets in the Championship, and it is good that Eddie has give Travers a few games at a higher level already. Whether the services of Artur Boruc now become more important as a back-up keeper remain to be seen, but I think it would be good to give Artur another year to keep some continuity in the squad.
Bournemouth have been well off for goalkeepers and it is one area where they have been wise to build up a surplus of players. It is hard to see that Asmir Begovic will be kept. Perhaps he will be sold to Inter Milan.

Reducing the wages is going to be a priority now and Aaron Ramsdale has earned a good pay day for the way he has performed this season. Even so, I think it will be hard for him to leave AFCB. Going to back to Sheffield though would make it easier for him to leave AFCB though.

In other news, Aaron Ramsdale has been named winner of the Bournemouth Echo's Micky Cave Award
