Sylvain Distin and Shane Long - The Footballing World

Bournemouth set to sign Distin

Bournemouth are set to sign former Everton defender Sylvain Distin, who is available on a free transfer after being released by the Toffees at the end of last season when he deal at Goodison Park ran out.

Would the 37-year-old centre-back pass a medical in the next few days, he will be the latest addition to Eddie Howe’s Cherries side, who are strengthening ranks ahead of their first ever English Premier League campaign, after being promoted from the English Championship last season.

Goalkeepers Artur Boruc and Adam Federici have been signed from Southampton and Reading respectively, while striker Joshua King has joined on a free transfer from Blackburn Rovers and Chelsea winger Christian Atsu has agreed a season-long loan move to Dean Court.
