Bournemouth

Cherries cash in on striker

22nd July 2019, 03:42 by Michael Holland

Lys Mousset has finally completed his move to Sheffield United, boosting Bournemouth's coffers by £10million in the process.

The Cherries were happy to let the player move on in search of more regular action and boss Eddie Howe will now be looking to use the money raised to bolster his own squad.

France Under-21 international Mousset has put pen to paper on a three-year contract with the south Yorkshire side, after the two clubs agreed a reported fee of £10million.

"For the third time this summer, the Blades have smashed the club's transfer record," United announced on their official website.

"French striker Lys Mousset has signed a three-deal with the Blades after an undisclosed fee with AFC Bournemouth was reached for his services."

Mousset joined Bournemouth from Le Havre in 2016 for a reported £5.7m, but was mainly restricted to the role of substitute.

The 23-year-old scored just five goals in 71 appearances for the Cherries, so a fee of £10million, almost doubling what they paid, represents good business for the club.
