Fraser Signs New Cherries Deal
Friday, 14th Aug 2015 13:24

Loanee winger Ryan Fraser has signed a new three-year deal with his parent club AFC Bournemouth.

The Scotland U21 international is with the Blues for the season but he remains very much in Cherries boss Eddie Howe’s plans and was offered the new terms at the time of his move to the Blues.

“We see his long-term future with us,” the Bournemouth manager told when Fraser joined Town.

“His loan is about developing him and making him a better player, because I felt if I couldn’t guarantee him a starting spot then I needed to get him games.

“Hopefully he’ll be able to get a consistent run with Ipswich and show everyone just how good he can be.”

Town boss Mick McCarthy says he wanted to sign the 21-year-old on a permanent basis.

“I asked Eddie about Ryan and whether we could sign him permanently after the loan,” he told the club site.

“He told me he wasn’t for sale and they’ve offered him a new three year-deal, which shows just how much they value him.

“But listen, I’m delighted with Ryan and that we’ve got him here for a year. He’s been top drawer since he arrived and he changed the game for us on Tuesday night.

“He’s a quality player and he’s fitted in here easily. I’m delighted to have him on board.”

Meanwhile, central defender Josh Yerwerth has been named in the Capital One Cup Team of the Round following his goalscoring debut against Stevenage.

Have we sounded them out about a transfer then? And they hope this bumps the value up?

Taricco_Fan added 13:36 - Aug 14
They'll need him next year back in the Championship.

StowTractorBoy added 13:37 - Aug 14
Very unlikely I know but was hoping he would opt to stay with us. The boy is class and can hopefully help us to get at least a top 6 place.

Bluebell added 13:38 - Aug 14
If they think that much of him, why loan him for a season? I would have thought loan till Christmas, see if they need him back, and then loan him again if he's not needed.

Still.... their loss is definitely our gain!

I hate this type of loan he never going to remain here so what's the point just stopping someone moving up from the junior ranks

mutters added 13:42 - Aug 14
@Kesgraveblue57 - i am happy to promote a youngster if they are good enough, but at the moment they are not. So Fraser imo is a good loan as he can make a difference.

nhabo added 13:46 - Aug 14
A loanee only stops someone moving up from the junior ranks if there is actually a youngster capable of performing to an acceptable standard for the same amount of time. You can't blood youngsters in the first team and expect them to play 40-odd games. Fraser proved himself last season with Bournemouth and it will help both us and his development if he can do exactly the same this season. If he helps our promotion push who will complain?

I'd much rather have a quality player like Ryan Fraser for just the one season rather than sign another Cameron Stewart on a 3 year deal.

Simply making sure that ITFC cannot buy him on the cheap when we go up and they come down.


Guru_of_Ipswich added 14:04 - Aug 14
I don't mind a loan player coming in, if it helps us.

look at it from this point of view, Young Matt Clarke's development will have suffered because he wouldn't get much game time here, so it makes sense to loan him to somebody that can give him that time. Are we going to moan about that, I know I wouldn't.

spanishblue added 14:08 - Aug 14
Its one thing for sure theres no pleasing some is there,here,s a guy who surely has given what can only be described as good performance,s every time he,s played as for anybody coming through i think its painfully obvious Cameron is a waste of space and henshall is not good enough the kids in that position are not yet here,we are fortunate to have two young fantastic quick skillful wingers which we,ve all been crying out for all be it for 12 months thankyou eddie howe and mr Wenger sadly i,ll i,ll only see them once or twice live Coyb

They think so much of him , they loan him out to a club in the 2nd tier, whilst playing at the highest level...yet they sign an unprpven rookie from that championship club to develop him at PL . Smells bit like a load of BS to me. If they thought that highly of Fraser , he would be in their squad THIS season and playing on occassions in the PL.

Different positions Inow , but Id say Fraser is lightyears ahead of Mings in current stage of development ! Their loss is out gain. Suspect tis 3 yr contarct is more about adding zeros on a future transfer..hopefully to us !

Flip added 14:20 - Aug 14
what a load of BS i'm reading from some of these comments its like saying if we were able to sign Messi it'd be stopping Cemal Ramadan's progress....Fraser is still only 21, they'll probably want to establish themselves in the prem and giving him more first team opportunities before blending him into their squad, and whats going to happen if they go down and we go up? they'll know we'll probably want him permanently so after this season he'll still have 2 years left rather than 1 allowing them to make more money out of any deal

Green_Army added 14:38 - Aug 14
Typical TWTD comments:

When MM plays inexperienced youngsters: 'Why are we not strengthening, we have £8m from Mings and we've not seen any of it!'

When MM plays players capable of promotion contention: 'Really wish Mick let the youngsters come through and have a chance instead of these loan players coming in.'

Loans are the nature of the Championship and we've bought in two quality signings this summer in the shape of Fraser and AMN via the loan market, without them I'd dread to think who would be on the wings and offering pace and attacking creativity.

MM's judge of character is second to none and we can rest assured that whoever he brings in will work hard and do their best for the team, that's what we need in the long run be it from youngsters, loanees or full time playing staff!

"If they think that much of him, why loan him for a season? I would have thought loan till Christmas, see if they need him back, and then loan him again if he's not needed. "
@Bluebell - I'd imagine it's because MIck & co fought damn hard to make sure we got him for the full year, less we get caught out with this recall nonsense we suffered with before.

ChateauWines added 14:48 - Aug 14
Ryan Fraser is an asset belonging to Bournemouth. He is doing very well for us already and is a great prospect (in Championship terms already arrived). To extend his contract firstly reassures the player he is wanted and secondly protects an asset that will only rise in value. Is he good enough for the premier league? I dont know. Eddie Howe clearly thinks not YET.

Kets just be grateful we have him this season. He has been loaned and it would be improper to try and get him on permanent deal so quickly.

The loan market is absolutely crazy at the moment. There is nothing stopping Man City and Chelsea buying up all the talent then loaning them out indefinitely ultimately stunting the growth of some English players with great potential.
When your squad is dependent on loans that is a disaster, but McCarthy has gradually got us into the position where our own players are in the majority and the loans are just for that added bit of flair it is difficult to find in Championship quality players.
To me loan players should only be of three kinds.
1) A couple of flair players to round off the squad.
2) Players in on loan with a view to signing them.
3) Emergency injury cover.

Just glad we've got him for a whole year. Let the future take care of itself.

Crawfordsboot added 15:38 - Aug 14
Green Army - it has been explained on these boards many times but i'll try one more time!

Our recent operating losses have been of the order of £8 mill a year. The Mings cash should mean that in the last financial year our accumulated debt should not have got any worse.

If you were funding the club to the tune of £80 million and all you got was grief from supporters saying you should put your hand in your pocket for more, even though the club is losing £8 million a year, what would your response be?

We are fortunate to have ME backing. God help us if he decides to walk away!

MarkFish added 15:48 - Aug 14
What will happen is we get promoted they get relegated.
We offer to buy him for 10 million as he is settled here they accept.end of.
He will not go back to the championship, this contract just swells his value.

BlueSwede added 15:52 - Aug 14
Very pleased we hav Fraser here for a full year with no recallclause. He is just as much our player this year as someone who is playing out the final year of his contract.
With the players being free to leave for nothing when their contract is up there is no difference between Fraser and McGoldrick at the moment.

kirsikka added 16:01 - Aug 14
For those wondering why we loaned him out, since moving to AFCB he's had a couple of minor niggles that were unfortunately timed meaning he's never really threatened the starting place of Matt Ritchie. Plus, given the form of MR last season he simply wasn't going to oust him.

I'm sure Eddie would have been happy to have him as part of the squad but he would have found it tough to have broken into the first XI again so it made sense for him to have a season somewhere that he has a decent chance of being first choice. I've seen it mentioned here that you were a little light on wingers so I guess that's why it was a good fit for all. It's now in his hands to take the chance and try and get 35+ league starts under his belt. I can't see Mick picking him unless he performs so it isn't an automatic selection, he just have the opportunity to make a first XI shirt his own for the season.

We've loaned in a replacement backup from Chelseas for a year, Atsu, so next season there is automatically a space available in our squad if he does well.

Hope that clears things up! I think Howe really rates him highly and thought it was better for his development to play a full season than have another year of minutes here and there.

jocasaja added 16:04 - Aug 14
IF he does as well as he has shown so far then we could still end up having him IF we get promoted and IF Bournemouth are relegated

bigolconnor added 16:07 - Aug 14
We've basically got quality players for the season relatively cheaply (I would assume). If we get promoted, we will be in a better position to sign them permanently and if we had home grown talent that was as good as them we would have to sell them in January anyway. So it's a total win win. What doesn't work is when you get players like Connor salmon or mark fish.

Chelsea loaned out 54 players last season
