AFC Bournemouth skipper excited by summer arrivals ahead of new PL season

Simon Francis believes AFC Bournemouth's summer signings can help the club progress in the Premier League.

Asmir Begovic and Jermain Defoe were among the players recruited and Francis says the club is “excited” to begin their third campaign in the top-flight.

“The new lads have settled excellently," the Cherries captain told "Asmir and Jermain Defoe have been here before and Nathan [Ake] was here as recently as last season.

“It’s exciting for us, everyone’s got to be excited to get started: the fans, the club and everyone involved with the players – looking to build on last season.”

Eddie Howe's side begin their PL season with a trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 12 August
