AFC Bournemouth have turned the loan signing of Hamed Traore into a permanent transfer, with the midfielder signing a five-year deal.

The 23-year-old arrived from Serie A side Sassuolo in the January transfer window and has made seven Premier League appearances, including five starts, to help keep the Cherries in the top flight. He has been out of action since the start of April due to injury.

A club statement explained: “Conditions within the original loan agreement have been reached, and the Ivorian is now contracted to the Cherries until June 2028.”

AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said: “We’ve been really impressed by Hamed since his arrival in January, and we’re delighted to have him with us for the long term. He’s shown he’s already capable of performing well at the top level, and we’re excited to see him develop even further.

“The permanent signing of Hamed is another mark of our ambition for the coming years, building on this season’s success to compete once again in the Premier League.”

Traore added: “Everyone has been really welcoming with me. Everything is good here and I’m just happy to be here.

“I’ve had a couple of injuries so I’m looking forward to next season, but right now I’m working hard and hope to come back before the end and help the team.”

Traore and his AFC Bournemouth team-mates will discover their fixtures for the 2023/24 Premier League season when they are announced on Thursday 15 June. The campaign kicks off on 12 August.
