AFC Bournemouth Confirm Five Huge Signings in Incredible Deadline Day

AFC Bournemouth

In what has been an absolutely incredible deadline day for the South Coast side, AFC Bournemouth have confirmed five transfers in the space of eight hours.

AFC Bournemouth Confirm Five Transfers on Busy Deadline Day

Freddie Woodman

The first deal to be announced, Freddie Woodman finally joined the Cherries on loan after missing out on a move in the summer. The Newcastle United goalkeeper was needed to provide depth at the start of the season with Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow both struggling with injuries.

Now, however, with the pair back fit and Dean Henderson an unlikely but potential addition at St James’ Park, Woodman is no longer required in the immediate future. As such, Bournemouth snapped him up, with backup goalkeeper Orjan Nyland looking at 6-8 weeks on the sidelines after having picked up an injury just days before the transfer deadline.

Nat Phillips

Next to arrive at Dean Court was Nat Phillips, who joined on loan from Liverpool until the end of the season. The defender will provide excellent depth in a defence that has been rather reliant on the presence of both Lloyd Kelly and Gary Cahill. The 24-year-old already has substantial Champions League experience under his belt, including a famous Cruyff turn in his own penalty box against AC Milan.

Kieffer Moore

Following Phillips, Kieffer Moore put pen to paper on the South Coast. The Wales international’s addition at Dean Court had been heavily rumoured throughout the window, with the Cherries desperately needing a “plan B” up-front. They now have their man, and Scott Parker will be excited to have the option of a physical presence in the middle of his attack to contrast Dominic Solanke’s fast-paced movement and clinical finishing.

Siriki Dembele

Siriki Dembele was next up. The Scottish citizen has impressed recently with his performances for Peterborough, and because of this Bournemouth were quick to act and swiftly signed him.

Dembele will provide extra depth on the wings, something that will prove especially useful with Junior Stanislas set for another extended spell on the sidelines.

Todd Cantwell

Finally, and arguably the biggest deal of the lot, Todd Cantwell was announced as Bournemouth’s fifth signing of the day late on Monday evening. The 23-year-old joins on loan with an option to buy, a clause the Cherries will be very keen to activate if he is able to help them earn promotion back to the Premier League this season.
