Nathan Ake has completed a move to Manchester City for a club-record undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old Dutch international has put pen-to-paper at the Etihad Stadium, where he will link up with the four-time Premier League champions.
Ake joined the Cherries from Chelsea in June 2016, initially on loan, and made such a positive impression in Dorset that he signed permanently the following summer.
During his time at Vitality Stadium, Ake made 121 appearances in all competitions, scoring 11 goals including memorable winners against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, and swept the board of the end of season awards in 2018.
