Dominic Solanke joins Bournemouth from Liverpool for £19m

Liverpool have confirmed the sale of Dominic Solanke to Bournemouth for £19m plus add-ons, with the England Under-21 forward set to be joined by Nathaniel Clyne on loan.

Solanke, who moved to Anfield from Chelsea in 2017, had been wanted by Crystal Palace on loan before that move fell through last week. But having agreed to allow Jermain Defoe to join Rangers on loan, Eddie Howe has acted quickly to snap up the England Under-21 striker.

Solanke, a former England youth international who has one senior cap – against Brazil in 2017 -, joined Liverpool from Chelsea on a free transfer in 2017.

He has not made a first-team appearance for the Premier League leaders this season and was ruled out of recent matches because of a muscle problem.

The Under-20 World Cup winner made 21 appearances last season, 16 of which were from the bench, scoring one goal.

He did not make a senior league appearance in three years at Chelsea, spending the 2015-16 season on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, where he scored seven goals in 25 Eredivisie appearances.
