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

Nathan Ake returns to the Watford squad after sitting out three matches for a straight red card for violent conduct.

Watford have been slipping down the table in Ake's absence. It is likely that most of that is due to regression to the mean rather than the Chelsea loanee's absence but that certainly hasn't helped. Ake has been very good when given a chance and with struggling Swansea the opposition in Week 22, Ake is a solid bet to perform very well with a clean sheet and points going forward both realistic targets for the left back.

Odion Ighalo scored yet again to level the match with Tottenham, but a red card for Nathan Ake helped Spurs edge Watford in the final minute of a 1-2 loss.

Watford conceded inside of twenty minutes, but Ighalo once again showed why he is building a resume that will surely see him playing for a big club in the near future. In the 41st minute, he was once again fed a ball by Troy Deeney that bounced over the head of Eric Dier and Ighalo made the Spurs defender look silly by dancing around him and scoring with ease yet again. The Nigerian simply does not know what the meaning of "pressure" is. The match could have gone either way, but Nathan Ake was sent off after a high boot on Erik Lamela just after the hour mark. Watford kept up the pressure and had an opportunity for a winner themselves down a man, but they got stung late on. Still, another solid effort from the promoted side that look very safe to stay up at the end of the season.

Nathan Ake has been having a strong season for Watford but he won't add to it in Week 18 as he misses out against his parent club.

The Watford left back has been excellent since coming into the starting lineup at Vicarage Road. Watford will have to look for another solution this week as Ake is ineligible to face the club he is on loan from. Ikechi Anya is likely to deputize.

Chelsea defender Nathan Ake will join Watford on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old defender signed a new five-year deal with Chelsea today and has immediately been moved to Watford to continue his development. The youngster is regarded as one of Chelsea's best prospects and he should strengthen the Watford defense immediately. He can play both as a defender and a midfielder and his fantasy value will largely be determined by where he lines up.

Nathan Ake will get a chance to play this weekend for Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho is in the mood to play youngsters and he told the media earlier this week that he will play Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Nathen Ake, and probably Izzy Brown this weekend. Chelsea are traveling to West Brom this weekend in what should be a fairly easy match so Ake, Brown, and Loftus-Cheek should be decent fantasy plays at an extremely cheap price. If anything, get them on your bench as cheap cover. Mourinho also mentioned that in the last week, he will play his regular team, so beware of the youngsters only being available for this weekend.

Chelsea have agreed to a new contract with defender Nathan Ake which keeps the 18 year old at Stamford Bridge until 2018.

The Holland centre-back is an investment for the future and shouldn't take much playing time from the Chelsea defenders. He can also play in the defensive part of midfield but it's unlikely he'll get much playing time this year. It's good to see Chelsea investing in the future, considering that hasn't been their plan in years past.
