Cherries boss Howe insists the youngster was aware of his position in the squad when he signed in the summer of 2016 and has praised the midfielder for his patience.
Howe told the Bournemouth Echo: "We made him aware when we signed him that there may be a period where he had to wait to get in the team and we were going to develop him behind the scenes but he took that situation really well.
"He is a hard worker, he is diligent, he wants to get to the very top and he displays the attitude which will help him get there.
"He's been very good. Even this season, he has not been a minute's problem and I think the sky's the limit for him."
