Bournemouth new boy Distin eagerly anticipating 'amazing' challenge

Experienced central defender Sylvain Distin is anticipating an amazing challenge during Bournemouth's debut season in the Premier League.

The 37-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Cherries after his deal at Everton expired on Wednesday and is expected to join his new teammates for pre-season training this week.

"There is a lot you can say about the Premier League but the most important thing is to live it, to be into it and that's what's going to happen to them," he told Cherries Player.

"Everybody is going to have a different experience of it and everybody is going to have a different expectations as well but the most important thing for them is to enjoy.

"It's an amazing experience, it's an amazing place to be and you just have to enjoy it.

"It's amazing at my age to still be here - that's going to be an amazing challenge as well."
