Comfortable playing in the number ten role, Tydeman spent two years with Fulham before being released, not letting his head drop and soon joining the Cherries as an under-14.
He scored 15 goals and six assists in his final year with the under-16s to earn his scholarship with the club.
Tydeman's cousin is Southampton player Will Smallbone, the family member able to offer insight and advice.
The midfielder looks up to Ronaldo and Raheem Sterling as his inspirations, as he looks to mirror their ability on the ball.
Tydeman is a childhood friend of team-mate Finn Tonks, the pair playing together, first with Salisbury United, since the age of seven, joining his friend a few years after he had signed for the club.
