Boruc rejoins Legia, the current Ekstraklasa champions, 15 years after he left the Polish giants to move away from his homeland for the first time with Celtic in 2005.

“Artur has played a huge role in AFC Bournemouth’s recent history, and is without doubt one of the best goalkeepers we have ever had,” said AFC Bournemouth chief executive, Neill Blake.

“His performances, initially on loan, helped get the club to the Premier League and then after signing permanently he was pivotal to staying in the top flight for five seasons.

“Even when his role changed over the last couple of years, Artur epitomised professionalism and has been a huge guidance and mentor to our younger goalkeepers.

“Artur always made it known that it was his dream to finish his career at Legia Warsaw, and I’m delighted that he is able to achieve that.”
