Emerson Hyndman’s recent injury caused a premature end to his time at Rangers, but Bournemouth is confident he’ll be ready to go when it comes time to join up for preseason.
Cherries manager Eddie Howe says he is confident that Hyndman’s foot injury will be properly healed in time for the start of preseason. Hyndman, who joined Bournemouth prior to the season, was injured throughout his first preseason with the club, stunting his integration with his new team.
While a preseason return would be beneficial for Hyndman’s club future, the timeline given by Howe would likely rule him out from any U.S. Men’s National Team callups this summer.
“We don’t think the injury is too bad,” Howe told the Bournemouth Echo, “and we hope Emerson will be with us from the first day of preseason. There is a slight problem with a bone in his foot but it doesn’t require an operation. We think it will heal itself.”
Howe recently revealed that he has plans for the midfielder, who made just one appearance in his first season with the club before moving to Rangers for a loan spell.
Hyndman made 17 appearances during his time with Rangers, scoring four goals while earning honors as the club’s Young Player of the Year.
