  • Bournemouth sign Liverpool-linked Kelly for £13m

Bournemouth have announced the signing of Lloyd Kelly from Bristol City, making him the Premier League's first summer signing of 2019.

The 20-year-old left-back, who is also comfortable in the centre of defence, has cost the Cherries £13m, Sky Sports News understands.

"The move has come around quite quickly, but I'm happy to be here and can't wait to start playing", Kelly told afcbTV.

In a statement on Bournemouth's website, Kelly said he "always wanted" to play in the Premier League.

With Robertson firmly cemented as first-choice left-back, and still just 25, Kelly would have serve as the Scot's backup which, as Moreno's paltry five appearances this season prove, may not provide the game time he requires.
