Duo leave Chelsea as Asmir Begovic joins Bournemouth and Dominic Solanke signs for Liverpool

Begovic, 29, will officially arrive at the Vitality Stadium on July 1 and has signed a long-term deal for the south coast club. He made 33 appearances for the Blues during a two-year stay at Stamford Bridge, and has been sold for a reported £10 million fee.

He said: "Being part of a title-winning team at Chelsea was amazing but I felt now was the right time to move on because I want to be playing regular football.

"I am coming into an important part of my career and I want to show people what I am capable of.

"When I spoke to Eddie Howe I knew AFC Bournemouth was the right club for me and I want to bring my experience to the squad, both on and off the pitch.

"I'm really excited to be part of the journey here and hope I can help take the club to another level."

Solanke leaves west London at the expiration of his contract, having failed to agree a new deal with Chelsea.

The academy graduate, 19, will also officially transfer on July 1, and a tribunal will be held to determine the fee the Reds must pay for the England youth international.
