AFC Bournemouth confirm signing of Juan Iturbe from AS Roma

Posted: Fri 01 Jan 2016

AFC Bournemouth can confirm the signing of Juan Iturbe on loan from AS Roma, subject to FA endorsement and European work permit. 

The Argentina under-20 international, who was capped at senior level for Paraguay at just 16 years of age, will join Eddie Howe’s side for the rest of the 2015/16 season. The Cherries retain the option to make the switch permanent in the summer for an undisclosed fee.

Iturbe began his career in Paraguay with Cerro Porteño, before making the move to Europe with Porto at the age of 18. 

After successful loan spells with River Plate and Verona, the explosive winger made a permanent switch to Roma in summer 2014, where he scored 3 goals in 39 league appearances.

Iturbe met his new teammates on New Year’s Day and enjoyed his first training session as an AFC Bournemouth player, but will not be eligible for tomorrow's trip to Leicester City.
Iturbe's first interview as an AFC Bournemouth player is on Cherries Player HD now.
