Watch: Chris Mepham and Dominic Solanke will flourish under Eddie Howe

Eyebrows were raised when Bournemouth splashed out £19m on Liverpool’s Dominic Solanke this January (as reported by BBC Sport) but Pl>ymaker FC’s Ed Tarlton believes the deal is one of the standout bits of business from the transfer window.

The signing was the first of two raids on Anfield in as many weeks along with a loan deal for right-back, Nathaniel Clyne (as reported by BBC Sport).

Both players have struggled with injuries and playing time this term but in the video above, Tarlton explains why the deals will pay off for both club and players.
