Saints’ Boruc Joins Championship side AFC Bournemouth

BOURNEMOUTH, England. September 20 (PSN) – AFC Bournemouth have signed Southampton FC goalkeeper Artur Boruc on an emergency loan.

The 34-year-old has been keen to leave ever since being displaced by £10m summer signing Fraser Forster, in order to gain first-team football.

Cherries manager Eddie Howe told the Bournemouth Echo: “We have good competition for places in every other position and I wanted to increase it in the goalkeeping department.”

“I am a firm believer that you always get the best out of people when they are pushing one another.”

“Artur is a presence and has a great deal of experience behind him, both at club and international level.”

“He was Southampton’s first-choice goalkeeper in the Premier League last season, he kept a number of clean sheets and performed very well.”

“He is good on crosses, a very good shot-stopper and comfortable with his feet. I think we are getting a very good goalkeeper and someone who has been there at the very highest level.”

“I have every confidence he will prove to be a good signing for us.”

The loan deal is on an emergency basis and is set to end in January.
