DONE DEAL: Bournemouth midfielder Matt Worthington happy to make Forest Green move

Forest Green have signed Bournemouth midfielder Matt Worthington on loan until January.

Worthington has featured in one game for the Cherries as substitute against Leicester in May 2017.

The 20-year-old spent five months on loan at Yeovil last season, playing in 15 League Two games.

He said, “I think what sets Forest Green apart from the majority of League Two clubs is that they like to play football. I think a lot of League Two clubs are quite direct, but that's what I know – to play football and keep the ball on the floor - so hopefully I'll be able to fit in easily.

“The aim will be for me to get as many games as possible and try and get a bit more experience and take that back with me.

“(Playing in) The Premier League was brilliant, it was the last game of the season and it was great to go out on a high. Obviously I enjoyed my loan spell with Yeovil last season and this year I want to kick on again and get some more games."
