On Monday, as AFC Bournemouth awaited news on the completion of Tyrone Mings’ move to Aston Villa for £26.5million, the Cherries announced the deal of Luton Town defender Jack Stacey.

As previously reported, AFC Bournemouth and Championship outfit Luton Town had previously agreed on a £4million fee.

The 23-year-old has now signed a four-year-deal at Dean Court and was unveiled in the new AFC Bournemouth third kit.

Upon completing the move, Stacey told afcb.co.uk

“…There were a few clubs interested but Bournemouth was always the one I saw myself at.

“This is a great club with a fantastic manager who helps establish young players, so that made it an easy decision in the end.

“I believe I can thrive here and I can’t wait to get started.”

With the deal now official Paddyltfc posted on the AFCB Vital forum to give his views on Jack Stacey…

Just thought id give you a bit of info on Jack Stacey.

He is a great player, he kept James Justin out of his preferred position of right back through his great performances so Justin moved over to left back. Justin has just gone to Leicester and is also a great player so you can see how well Stacey has been playing for the last 2 years.

He has an unbelievable engine on him and never stops, he is always available when attacking and is always back to defend. He is a good crosser and will provide plenty of assists to your strikers Wilson and King who I hope has a good season as I’ve picked him in my fantasy team! Reminds me of Alexander Arnold but not as good final ball.

I’ve been saying we had the best two right back and left back outside the premier in Justin and Stacey so its come as no surprise they are both moving on.

Been watching Luton since 1988 and I cannot think of many better players than Jack Stacey.

Glad he is going to a team like yourselves as its how Luton like to play so he will take to it like a duck to water. I’d be amazed if he isn’t the first choice by the end of the season.

Your say…

Wouldn’t it be great if the Premier League announced a homegrown player cap? Like, minimum of 7 or 8 homegrown players in the starting 11.

Or if Brexit screws the whole Premier League economy and it becomes much more expensive and not always even possible to sign foreign players…

We’d walk the league, even with our exotic foreign import “Ryan Fraser”. Still blows my mind that Scottish players don’t count as homegrown… – Join the conversation, click here.
