Bournemouth have confirmed the signing of Dutch winger Arnaut Danjuma from Clubb Brugge. The 22-year-old scored six goals in 25 games last season in what was his only season in Belgium.
Danjuma came through PSV Eindhoven’s academy before enjoying two seasons with NEC. Club Brugge soon snapped him up and he has now moved to the Premier League for a fee of £13.7million.
Danjuma becomes Bournemouth’s fourth signing of the summer, with Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey and Philip Billing all moving to the south coast. Danjuma told Bournemouth’s TV channel: “Coming to AFC Bournemouth is a really good step up for me.
“The Premier League is a great place to play your football, especially at a club like this. I’m excited to be here. The last 24 hours have been a bit crazy, but I’m delighted to be at the club and I’ve only heard positive things about it.
“I think the way the team plays suits my style. I like to attack and I cannot wait to get started.” Danjuma’s arrival is timely for boss Eddie Howe after he lost David Brooks to injury on Wednesday.
The former Sheffield United winger will miss the first three months of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the friendly against Brentford last weekend. Danjuma will now be hoping to impress in training before the first game of the season against Sheffield United.
The Cherries are 1.91 to pick up all three points, with the draw 3.60. United have also been busy in the transfer market and they are 3.80 to grab all three points as they return to the top flight.
