Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said that he will not be looking outside the club to fix his side's defensive woes.
The Cherries have just for clean sheets in 24 outings this season in the PL and haven't shut out their opponents since November. "In terms of the January window, I don’t think we’ll be looking outside to help us," he said. Howe went on to explain that he views his side's leakiness as a consequence of their attacking mindset, which has yielded more goals at a cost: "We worked hard to re-find our goalscoring touch [(at the start of the season when they struggled to score)] and did that maybe at a cost of conceding some goals. But I think it’s a balance which has always served us okay in the past. We have been free-scoring but we have always been a team slightly susceptible to concede. But that’s a better balance for us."
