Bournemouth have solved their left-back conundrum by bringing in Diego Rico from Leganes.
The Spaniard completed the switch on Tuesday in a deal believed to be worth £10.7m. Borussia Dortmund tried to convince Rico at the eleventh hour, but the 25-year-old preferred to join a Premier League club. And speaking at his unveiling, Rico expressed his delight after signing a four-year contract with the Cherries.
“I'm very happy to be here and would like to thank everyone at AFC Bournemouth for making me feel so welcome," he said.
"This is a new step for me in my career and, from my heart, I can say I am truly excited to be here and looking forward to the future.
"I have heard so much about the manager. I learned he is very professional and has a great philosophy on football, and I can see that is true from the short time I have met him so far."
Looking super cool, @diegorico_3!
And thanks for officially revealing our new @UmbroUK third kit.#afcbpic.twitter.com/3zWbXZPXX5
