Jordon Ibe was linked with a summer move to Celtic.
Throughout last month, Jordon Ibe's Bournemouth future looked uncertain.
The Bournemouth Echo reported that Celtic wanted to sign Ibe and this speculation continued right up to the Scottish transfer deadline.
Ibe has not had a big role at Bournemouth this season. He has not made any Premier League starts, playing just a combined 48 minutes off the bench.
He is now showing he is ready to bounce back from an uncertain summer, with Celtic unable to reach an agreement with The Cherries.
Yesterday he featured in a behind closed doors game for Bournemouth against Queens Park Rangers.
He scored a hat-trick in a 6-1 victory for Bournemouth, making a statement of intent.
Ibe is ready to put all of the uncertainty behind him and move forward.
His performance has challenged manager Eddie Howe to put him into the starting line up this weekend at home to Everton.
He has struggled to live up to the £15 million Bournemouth paid for him, but it is never too late to have a fresh start.
Now free of distraction over his future, he might be able to kick on.
