His raw potential was obvious during a loan spell from Brighton, which was soon made permanent as the Cherries pushed for promotion from League One.
He has continued to add goals to his game, demonstrating an eye for the spectacular along the way.
An overhead kick against Ipswich Town, an audacious effort at Fulham as well as an acrobatic volley against Southampton last season emphasise this and he missed just two games as the Cherries earned Premier League survival.
