AfterPay, a payment method that allows consumers to pay for their purchases at a later date, is becoming increasingly popular, especially in online casinos. This service allows players to enjoy their favorite casino games right away without having to make an upfront payment, which can improve the overall gaming experience. The convenience of deferred payments has made afterpay casino a popular option among gamblers, which has contributed to its widespread adoption in the online gambling industry. In another arena, Southampton, which recently joined the Premier League, has expressed interest in 24-year-old right-back Max Aarons from Bournemouth. Aarons has attracted the attention of many clubs due to his impressive results and potential. Southampton’s pursuit of Aarons is indicative of its desire to strengthen its squad as it seeks to establish itself in the top tier of English football. This interest underscores the club’s strategic approach to building a competitive team that can thrive in the Premier League.

Newly promoted Premier League side Southampton have once again come to AFC Bournemouth in the hopes of a good transfer deal.

Aided by the Cherries help with the loans of David Brooks and Joe Rothwell last season, AFC Bournemouth’s lower league neighbours won promotion from the Championship last season via the play-offs.

They are now reportedly interested in 24-year-old right-back Max Aarons.

Aarons made the move to Dean Court 11 months ago, signing from Norwich City. At the time it was reported that he had been close to a move to Leeds United, however, he secured a deal with the Cherries for a fee believed to be around the £ 7 million mark, with potential add-ons rising to £12 million.

He initially walked straight into AFC Bournemouth head coach Andoni Iraola’s first-choice XI, making 11 of his 13 Premier League starts by mid-November. Unfortunately, injuries would see him displaced by Adam Smith and Aarons has had limited opportunities since the turn of the calendar year.

With Adam Smith turning 34 before the end of the upcoming 2024/25 season and Aarons being the only other right-back in the AFC Bournemouth squad and impressing when he was available, it seems unlikely that AFC Bournemouth would be willing to let Aarons go if it wasn’t financially a good deal for the club.

Southampton have reportedly “approached Bournemouth for talks” whilst “clubs from Europe are also monitoring Aarons” according to Sky Sports reporter Mark McAdam.

Southampton are reportedly in the market for a right-back as Kyle Walker-Peters is entering the final year of his contract at Southampton.

Your say…

We’re not exactly flush with full backs as it is, we need to be signing in that area not selling.

I know Aarons hasn’t set the world alight and has spent time out injured. But he covers either full back side to a competent standard and the chances are his hamstrings will improve with a summer rest.

I wouldn’t be rushing to talk with anyone, never mind them. – To join the conversation, click here.
