Nathan Ake will look to follow up a strong season on loan at Watford with another step forward on the south coast as he joins Bournemouth on loan from Chelsea for the 2016-17 season.
The move to Bournemouth marks Ake's third loan move since his arrival at Chelsea. He had a brief stint at Reading in the Championship before his Young Player of the Season turn at Vicarage Road last season. Able to play multiple positions, it isn't entirely clear where Ake fits in with the Cherries. Charlie Daniels (left back) and the central pairing of Simon Francis and Steve Cook were solid in the positions Ake is most asssociated with. Perhaps Francis will play on the right regularly - he split time between center back and right back about evenly last season - with Ake playing centrally. Perhaps Ake will just be excellent depth for what was a thin squad last season. Regardless, Bournemouth made a solid, if short-term, acquisition today. Jun 29 - 11:31 AM
