Jermain Defoe Joins Bournemouth


Jermain Defoe has completed his move from Sunderland to Bournemouth on a three-year deal.

The 34-year-old agreed terms with the Cherries last month, with his Sunderland deal including a clause that allowed him to leave for free after they were relegated.

Defoe returns to the South Coast after 16 years and will earn £65,000-a-week

“It’s great to be back and I’m really looking forward to this challenge,” he said.

“When the opportunity came about to return to AFC Bournemouth I just knew it was the right one.

“It was an easy decision, joining a top team with a top manager. It’s a great place to be.

“The Bournemouth fans know that every time I pull the shirt on I will give 100 per cent, and the one thing I can guarantee is goals.”
