AFC Bournemouth fan favourite Maxi Gradel has wished the Cherries supporters, staff and AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe well following his departure from the south coast.

Gradel had been a fan favourite during his two spells on the south coast, but his second spell had not panned out the way everyone would have hoped.

Since his return to AFC Bournemouth following the side’s promotion to the Premier League, Gradel played a little over 1,000 minutes for the side in the top flight of English football, scoring one memorable goal against Swansea City.

The majority of his time during this spell he has either been injured or out of favour, so a permanent move was likely to please all involved.

The 30-year-old spent last season on loan with Toulouse where he scored 11 goals and claimed four assists in 35 appearances in all competitions.

He played a key role in Toulouse avoiding relegation after he scored and a claimed an assist in their 4-0 aggregate playoff win against AC Ajaccio.

French newspaper L’Equipe claimed “the two sides have agreed a fee of around €2million”, however the fee, as ever, is officially undisclosed.

Your say…

Too many celebrated when he came back because he was great in League 1.
Facts are, not Premier League standard, never was, never will be.
Injuries aside, not up to it.

More money spunked by people who really don’t know how to handle the large funds that come into the club each year.

Mark my words…there will be money flunked again this year.
