Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says he is still seeking to bring in some new faces but isn't desperate to add to his squad.

The Cherries have brought in the likes of Jermain Defoe, Asmir Begovic and Nathan Ake over the summer and Howe says he would be prepared to make further additions.

However, the manager says he is happy with his current squad if he fails to sign any more players before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

"I'm happy with what we've got," Howe told the Daily Echo.

"We acted early in the market and are delighted with the players we have signed.

"To say that we were finished would not be accurate because I never consider our business done."

"You just don't know what will happen. You might get injuries, suspensions or problems and need to be able to replace players if you have to," he added.

"I am not going to say no, but we are not, at this moment in time, in desperate need to strengthen."

Bournemouth head to West Brom in the opening round of Premier League fixtures on Saturday and they are 2/1 to take all three points or 14/1 to win 2-0.
