AFC Bournemouth have formally announced the signing (subject to international clearance) of Club Brugge winger Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld for an undisclosed fee, widely reported to be £13.7million.

Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld is a former right wing-back who has moved into a more attacking role in recent seasons. He scored six goals and contributed four assists across all competitions last season and has broken into the Netherlands international squad.

His signing comes just as AFC Bournemouth announced that David Brooks will miss the first three months of the season following surgery on his ankle.

The 22-year-old becomes AFC Bournemouth’s fourth signing of the summer, having had previous interest from AC Milan, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton.

Eddie Howe had already spent £13million on Bristol City defender Lloyd Kelly, £4million on Luton Town defender Jack Stacey and £15million on Huddersfield Town midfielder Philip Billing.

With the sales of Tyrone Mings to Aston Villa for £26.5million, Lys Mousset to Sheffield United for £10million and Connor Mahoney to Millwall for a fee of £1million, AFC Bournemouth’s a net spend total is £8.2million so far for this 2019 summer transfer window.

Danjuma told afcb.co.uk

“Coming to AFC Bournemouth is a really good step up for me,”

“The Premier League is a great place to play your football, especially at a club like this.

“I’m excited to be here. The last 24 hours have been a bit crazy but I’m delighted to be at the club and I’ve only heard positive things about it.

“I think the way the team plays suits my style, I like to attack and I cannot wait to get started.”

Your say…

Excellent news. An extra body exactly where we needed it and should Fraser, as expected, move on in 12 months he could well be the replacement we need in place already. Fingers crossed. – Join the conversation, click here.
