Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe admits that he may struggle to keep hold of his key players this summer.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has admitted that the Championship side may struggle to keep hold of their key players this summer.

Striker Lewis Grabban, who scored 22 goals in 46 matches last season, has already left the Cherries to join newly-relegated Norwich City.

"Keeping the squad together may be our hardest challenge, given how well they performed," Howe told BBC Radio Solent.

"Some of the ages of the players are very attractive to both Premier League and Championship clubs."

Bournemouth finished 10th in the Championship last season.
