Bournemouth starlet Lewis Cook has received praise from his manager Eddie Howe after some good performances in the final weeks of the season.
Cook appeared five times for the Cherries towards the end of the season before missing the final day clash with Leicester as he is representing the England U-20s at the World Cup in South Korea. Cook arrived to the south coast club ahead of the 2016/17 season in a £7 million deal with Leeds United, and started the first PL game of the campaign before enduring a frustrating season on the periphery. However, Cook's displays since returning to the field off the bench in the GW33 defeat to Spurs have been promising. The highlight was the 20 year old supplying an assist for Junior Stanislas against Burnley. His manager favourably compared the Yorkshire man to Jack Wilshere, citing his comparable creativity, control and pace aided by an aggression similar to that of Harry Arter. Howe added: "Lewis is a very special talent... In a short time in the team, he really has been very productive." It sounds like Cook may be more central to Howe's plans next term.
