BOURNEMOUTH have signed Holland winger Arnaut Danjuma from Club Brugge for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old is the Cherries’ fourth summer signing, following Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey and Philip Billing through the doors at Dean Court.
Danjuma’s arrival will help offset injuries to David Brooks and Dan Gosling, with the influential pair sidelined for three months.
Danjuma told afcbTV: ‘I think the way the team plays suits my style, I like to attack and I cannot wait to get started.’
Danjuma’s arrival will further boost boss Eddie Howe’s options, with the Cherries launching their Premier League campaign by hosting promoted Sheffield United on Saturday, August 10.
The two-cap Holland star emerged from PSV Eindhoven’s academy and enjoyed Champions League football last term in Belgium.
■ Aston Villa make double signing
ASTON VILLA’S summer spending has continued with the signings of Tom Heaton and Marvelous Nakamba.
Dean Smith has taken his number of new acquisitions into double figures since winning promotion back to the Premier League in May, spending in excess of £100million.
Goalkeeper Heaton (pictured) from Burnley and midfielder Nakamba from Belgian side Club Brugge are the latest arrivals at Villa Park on Thursday, both joining for undisclosed fees.
Nakamba, 25, was a target for Villa in January while they were in the Championship. The Zimbabwe international played in France for Nancy and Vitesse Arnhem in Holland before his spell at Club Brugge for whom he played in the Champions League.
Heaton, who was entering the final year of his contract at Burnley, made nearly 200 appearances for the Clarets after moving to Turf Moor from Bristol City in 2013.
