Connor Mahoney: Nathan Ake deal convinced me about Bournemouth

Connor Mahoney admits seeing Nathan Ake join Bournemouth helped make up his mind.

The former Blackburn Rovers winger agreed to join the Cherries this week.

Mahoney told the Daily Echo: “Nathan Ake is a £20 million player from Chelsea and clearly thought this was the best step for him.

“If he could make that choice, there was no reason I couldn't.

“I know I'm one of the youngest players here, but if you're good enough, you're old enough. The gaffer has said that to me. I want to give him a selection headache on the wing.

“I will work hard, try to improve and, hopefully, I can be the first name on the team-sheet as soon as possible."
