Exciting striking prospect Christian Saydee was propelled into Eddie Howe's first-team squad following an impressive start to 2019/20.
By the end of November, Saydee led the goalscoring charts for the under-18s with 13 and won the club's October goal-of-the-month award for a stunning 35-yard strike in a 4-2 win at Swindon.
He signed for Pro Touch Soccer Academy when he was nine before joining the youth ranks at Reading.
Born in Hillingdon, he spent seven-and-a-half years with the Royals before signing for the Cherries when he was 16.
He made a bright start to 2018/19 before rupturing his MCL during the Cherries’ FA Youth Cup victory over Aston Villa.
Despite spending the rest of the season on the sidelines, he still finished the campaign with 18 goals and 18 assists.
A second-year scholar, Christian is determined to come back better and stronger this season and has divided his time between training with the first team and Alan Connell's under-18s.
