Soccer-Bournemouth sign striker Solanke from Liverpool
Bournemouth have signed Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League side announced on Friday.
"I think the club is going somewhere," Solanke said in a statement on Bournemouth's website.
"Over the past few years, they've been really good in the Premier League and had some good positional finishes. I think it's a good club to be at, especially for someone of my age."
Solanke made 21 league appearances for Juergen Klopp's side last season, scoring one league goal, but has not featured for the league leaders in the current campaign with a muscle issue keeping him out of their recent games.
Reports also said that Liverpool right back Nathaniel Clyne could follow Solanke to the Vitality Stadium, with the club short of options in defence after injuries to captain Simon Francis and Adam Smith.
Bournemouth are a comfortable 12th in the table with 27 points from 21 matches.
