Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury hints at summer signings

Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury has said he may sign players in the summer after his side failed to make the League One play-off final on Wednesday.

The Cherries were denied a place in the Wembley final after they were beaten 4-2 on penalties by Huddersfield.

"I'll build on the squad if necessary and maybe make a couple of additions to take us a step further next season," Bradbury told BBC Radio Solent.

"But I want to keep the lads together, they're a special group."

Bradbury, who replaced Eddie Howe as Bournemouth boss in January, has already set his sights on repeating this term's achievements.

"Definitely, the aim next season will be to make the play-offs, it will be fantastic for us again," he said.

"But at the same time the lads have done brilliant all season and no one even gave us a chance to get where we're at so everything else is a bonus really.

"We've got an inner belief that we can go on as a group and be successful, even though we haven't made the final or got promoted, I class this as a successful season," he added.
