Bournemouth chief Blake welcomes Clyne deal

Bournemouth chief Neill Blake has welcomed their deal for Nathaniel Clyne from Liverpool.

The England international right-back will remain at Vitality Stadium until the end of the 2018/19 season and is eligible for Saturday's FA Cup third round tie against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Blake said: “When a player of Nathaniel's quality and experience became available we had to act quickly, and I'm delighted that he will be with us until the end of the season.

“With Adam Smith and Simon Francis suffering injuries in recent weeks, it was imperative to strengthen the right-back area, and Nathaniel is a great fit for our squad in terms of his character and style of play.

“I am looking forward to seeing him pull on an AFC Bournemouth shirt and am confident that he can help us build on a record-breaking first half of the season.
