Tavernier Secures Premier League Move To Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth have completed the signing of Middlesbrough’s Marcus Tavernier for an undisclosed fee, with the midfielder penning a five-year deal.

The 23-year-old, who attended LFE’s pre-season trip to the Netherlands with Boro back in 2015, played 155 times for his boyhood club, flourishing under Chris Wilder last year with five goals and five assists in 48 games in all competitions.

England Under-20 international Tavernier debuted in the Carabao Cup in August 2017 and scored his first senior goal two months later in the same competition against his new employers.

Neill Blake, AFC Bournemouth Chief Executive, told the club website: “We are very pleased to have brought Marcus in. He was one of the stand out performers in the Championship last season, and will be a good fit with our squad.

“He has a great pedigree, tremendous energy and is a versatile young player who can play a number of different positions.

“Marcus was attracting a great deal of interest and we are delighted he has decided to join us. Everyone at the club is looking forward to working with him.”
