Bournemouth accept Man City offer for Nathan Ake

Bournemouth have accepted an offer from Manchester City for Nathan Ake.

The Mirror says Bournemouth have reportedly accepted a bid of £41m from City for their Dutch centre-back Ake.

Ake has impressed in the Premier League this season despite the Cherries' relegation, and they appeared resigned to losing him following their drop to the Championship.

City manager Pep Guardiola is known to be keen to add strength in depth to his defence this summer, and it looks as though Ake will be the first player through the door.

And a fee has been agreed for the player between the two clubs, with the deal expected to be completed over the next few days.
