Bournemouth confirmed on Tuesday that Sylvain Distin will not remain at the club once his contract expires next month.
Distin signed a one-year contract at the club on a free transfer last summer from Everton, where he spent six years after joining from Portsmouth. The 38-year-old made 12 Premier League appearances, including nine starts, in Bournemouth's first-ever season in the Premier League and will now leave on a free transfer. Said manager Eddie Howe: "Going into the Premier League, we felt bringing someone with vast experience and knowledge of the division would be hugely beneficial to our squad and give them someone to lean on. Sylvain played that role perfectly, but he also played his part on the pitch and was involved in some pivotal games." May 24 - 3:52 PM
