Bournemouth and Eddie Howe got their man with a move for Chelsea defender Nathan Ake.
After playing half of last season on loan at Bournemouth, the 22-year-old now becomes the club-record signing in a reported £20 million move. Ake only played in two of the club's first 11 games last season before he broke into the starting lineup, excelling as a starter in eight of the next nine matches. But Chelsea manager Antonio Conte recalled the Dutch international from his loan in January to make only two league appearances until the end of the season. But now Ake returns to the Cherries as a vaunted starter. "I had a great time here last season so I’m really happy to be back," said Ake. "It’s an exciting challenge. Chelsea is a great club and I learned so much there but this is a new step and the right place for me to develop even more." Jun 30 - 6:48 PM
