Joe Rothwell became the second summer signing for AFC Bournemouth when he put pen to paper on a four-year deal on Saturday. 

The Cherries beat a host of competition to the 27-year-old who was one of the standout players in the Sky Bet Championship last season.

The Manchester United academy graduate made his name with League One side Oxford United, before having a successful spell with Blackburn Rovers.

At Ewood Park, he made 161 appearances across four seasons, impressing for his ability to run with the ball and passing qualities, which allowed him to assist ten goals in 2021/22.
