Bournemouth sign Ivory Coast forward Gradel

04 August 2015, 15:00

London - Bournemouth have signed Ivory Coast international Max Gradel from French Ligue 1 club St Etienne on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old forward returns to the Cherries seven years after leaving the club, where he spent two separate loan spells in the 2007-08 season.

"I think it is a real achievement to be able to bring him in and attract him to the club. Hopefully, he will enjoy his second time here," Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo.

"He is a great character and someone who has real enthusiasm for the game. When I worked with him before, he always wanted to run, to work hard and to improve."

Former Leeds United forward Gradel scored 17 goals in 23 starts for St Etienne in the 2014-15 season.
