Nathan Ake's short and sweet period on loan at Bournemouth from Chelsea is over.
The 21 year old Dutch defender arrived at the club back in June and went on to make 12 first team appearances. Ake broke into the Cherries' starting XI in the mid-November win over Stoke, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win in his first league start. The headline grabbing performance transformed what had been a frustrating spell bench-warming into a huge opportunity. He went on to start all but one of the next 10 league games at centre-back (he was ineligible to play Chelsea), scoring the dramatic winner against Liverpool and a consolation against Southampton. Eddie Howe will be disappointed to lose the versatile defender, who had become an important team member at Bournemouth. Jan 8 - 7:28 AM
