Nathan Ake joins AFC Bournemouth on a permanent basis

Nathan Ake has joined AFC Bournemouth on a permanent transfer, report the Chelsea website.

Ake spent the first half of the 2016/17 campaign on loan with the Cherries, and after a slow start, he began to establish himself as a cornerstone in Eddie Howe’s defence.

When January came around, Ake was recalled by the Blues and drafted straight into Antonio Conte’s squad to provide cover at the back. He only made sporadic appearances, but when he did, he continued to impress.

However, competition for places in Conte’s back-line is tough, and at Ake’s tender age, he needs to be playing regular first-team football. He has now, as the club’s website report, moved to the Vitality on a permanent basis, which looks to be a step in the right direction for his career.

We echo that, and hope that one day the Dutchman can return to Stamford Bridge a much more well-rounded player.
