Chelsea have confirmed goalkeeper Asmir Begovic will join Bournemouth on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee, rumored to be in the region of £10m.
A long-term transfer target of Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, Begovic will seal his move to the Vitality Stadium when the transfer window official opens on July 1. The 29-year-old goalkeeper joined Premier League champions Chelsea in 2015 from Stoke City, but departs in search of regular playing time having served as a back-up to first-choice keeper Thibaut Courtois. The Bosnia and Herzegovina international made 33 appearances during his two seasons at Stamford Bridge, and will now compete for the starting role at Bournemouth with current number one Artur Boruc. Begovic told the Bournemouth website: "AFC Bournemouth is an exciting, ambitious club which has everything in place for a very bright future. Being part of a title-winning team at Chelsea was amazing but I felt now was the right time to move on, because I want to be playing regular football." May 30 - 3:04 PM
