Injury news: Ünal ready to play


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth head coach Andoni Iraola has revealed that Enes Ünal will be part of the squad for the Premier League game with Fulham.

The Cherries boss admitted that it was a difficult few days for the Turkey international as he waited for a visa to make the move to England.

However, he finally joined the rest of his teammates on Wednesday and Iraola said he’s ready to make an impact.

He explained: “I think for sure they were difficult days for him as he was looking forward to coming here and start training with the team.

“He’s been training for us the last two days and I think he’s doing well, he’ll be part of the squad and he’s ready to help the team straight away.

“Obviously, like with Romain [Faivre], we have to spend some time now with the info, with the things we want from each player but I think also, he speaks two or three languages so it’s been really easy for him.

“I hope the process of the adaptation is quite fast and goes well.”

Iraola also confirmed four players remain absent for the Cherries, but the majority of the squad are available for the trip to Craven Cottage.

He added: “I can give you all [of the names]. We are out with Max Aarons, James Hill, Ryan Fredericks and Tyler Adams, that’s all.

“Everyone else is ready to play.”
