The 19-year-old had a spell with Torquay United last season and Bournemouth may have been tempted to send him out again to gain further first-team experience.

However, he is set to compete for a first-team place with Steve Cook and Tommy Elphick this season after responding to a challenge from Howe.

Howe, who rewarded Cargill with a two-and-a-half year contract in November, told the Daily Echo: "I said to Baily at the end of last season to come back as if he wanted to get into my first team. 

"I don't want people to aim to be in the development squad, I want all the young pros to try to be with us. 

"There are limited spaces because of the number of bodies we have but, if someone proves they are good enough to be with us they will and Baily has proved that this pre-season. He has been excellent. 

"The biggest compliment I can pay him so far is that he looks like he should be part of our squad. He hasn't looked out of place in one training session. 

"He is very composed on the ball, he is technically very good and he reads the game well for such a young player. I think he has a bright future ahead of him, providing he continues to keep the attitude he has shown."

Questioned on whether another loan spell could be an option for Cargill, Howe replied: "He is not going anywhere at the moment because our fit centre-halves are Steve Cook and Tommy Elphick and, as we speak, Baily is next in line. 

"Hopefully, Elliott Ward will regain his fitness soon and we will have four very good centre-halves. In terms of loan periods for Baily, it is not high on my agenda to see him go out at this moment in time."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
