The 21-year-old severed several tendons in his right hand after falling on a glass.

Cherries boss Sean O'Driscoll told the Bournemouth Echo: "It is a freak accident and you have no control over these things.

"It is a blow to lose him because he has been playing really well, but it is one of the few areas where we actually have a bit of cover."
