Bournemouth added some veteran leadership to their newly promoted side by signing center back Sylvain Distin.
A Toffee since 2009, Distin began seeing his playing time fade over the past couple of seasons. He hasn't maintained the best fitness record in the that time while younger talent John Stones began to carve out his role as the center back of the future. At 37 years old, it would be difficult to imagine Distin being looked at as an every-game starter. He will likely be moved in and out of Eddie Howe's XI and never play two straight matches in short succession, not too much unlike Rio Ferdinand's role for QPR last season. Where he will make the most impact is likely on the training ground and in the locker room. He shouldn't be seen as anything more than a bench-filler for fantasy purposes heading into next season.
