The experienced defender became the Cherries' first summer signing earlier this week following his departure from Norwich but the focus will be on quality not quantity as Howe prepares his side for life in the Championship.

Howe told the Daily Echo: "We need quality additions and I don't think we need quantity.

"Whichever player we sign, we are trying to make sure they are going to improve the team and the squad so there will not be a huge number coming in. Hopefully, there will be more quality additions in the calibre of Elliott.

"I wouldn't want to bring in someone who was potentially not better than what we have already because you are just adding numbers to the group."
