Bournemouth Signs Chelsea Goalkeeper Begovic

Bournemouth have signed keeper Asmir Begovic from Premier League champions Chelsea for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina player has signed a “long-term deal” with the Cherries 10 years after signing for them on loan when they were in League One.

Begovic made 17 league starts in two seasons at Stamford Bridge – but just two as Chelsea won the league.

“I am coming into an important part of my career,” he said.

Begovic, who joined Chelsea on a four-year deal from Stoke City in July 2015, added: “I want to show people what I am capable of.

“Being part of a title-winning team at Chelsea was amazing but I felt now was the right time to move on because I want to be playing regular football.”
