Chelsea have confirmed Christian Atsu has joined Bournemouth on loan.
The 23-year-old spent last season on loan at Everton, making 13 appearances in all competitions, and will now link up with the Premier League newboys.
Atsu joined Chelsea from Porto in 2013 but is yet to make a first team appearance for the Blues.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said: “I think he is a player, although he is a younger player, he is a player with outstanding experience when you look at his career he has had.
“He has had a lot thrown at him – Porto, Vitesse, Chelsea, on the international stage – and he’s done very well on the international stage as well.
“We are loaning a player of huge potential, again we had to fight off several other Premier League clubs to get him, so we are very, very pleased.
“I think he will bring pace and ability to beat a man one-v-one which is very important in the Premier League, so for all those reasons I think he is a great signing for us.”
