AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has lauded Jordon Ibe’s professionalism since he joined the club in the summer of 2016.
The winger was impressive in their 2-1 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion providing two vital assists in the game.
And Howe has confirmed that the former Liverpool has shown his willingness to learn and improve while waiting patiently for his handwork to pay off.
"Jordon looked confident when he came on,” Howe told media ahead of Everton clash.
"He looked sure of himself, took the game to Brighton and then created the two goals, and carried that on in midweek.
"He was all over the pitch, technically good and positive, and a good week for him as well as us.
"Working with him, he has the talent and the tools to do well. He's come in on his days off and worked with the coaches, and shown a willingness to improve.
"Sometimes you get instant rewards, sometimes it takes time. And that's the challenge for the players when you don't get the instant returns.
"But he's been patient and hopefully he's seen the progression."
