Marcus Tavernier: Bournemouth players have helped me settle

Marcus Tavernier is delighted to be a Bournemouth player.

The 23-year-old arrived at the Vitality Stadium from Championship side Middlesbrough in August for a reported fee of around £12million, making Cherries just the third club Tavernier has represented at a senior level, after a six-month loan spell at Milton Keynes Dons in 2018.

Leeds-born, Tavernier started his footballing career in the youth system at Newcastle United, before making the switch to Teesside at under-14 level.

Reflecting on his transfer this summer, Tavernier told the Daily Echo: “I think this is probably the best decision I've made so far in my career.

“I can't thank the boys enough for helping me settle in down here.

“I just feel like I can be my normal self and play with confidence on the pitch."
