Bournemouth supporters on Twitter have reacted with uncertainty to the news that they have signed striker Dominic Solanke from Liverpool. 

The Cherries announced on their official website on Friday that the 21-year-old has sealed his move from Anfield to Dean Court putting pen-to-paper on a long-term contract. 

BBC Sport claim that Bournemouth have signed the England player for a deal worth £19 million as they are also set to sign Reds right-back Nathaniel Clyne on-loan until the end of the season.  


Following his move to the south coast, Solanke will now be looking to pair up with his England teammate Callum Wilson, who has been in blistering form this season.

Nonetheless, during his career so far, Solanke has represented the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem. 

He will be now looking to make his mark under the attack-minded Eddie Howe, with Bournemouth sitting 12th in the Premier League table.
