Defoe would add some 15 goals or more to AFCB

There has been open coverage on the possibility of Jermain Defoe coming to Bournemouth and the Daily Mail is convinced that Jermain will be offered a three-year deal at 34 for a 85,000 contract at the Cherries. It seems astronomical money for a 34-year-old, but when that comes with a guarantee of 15 goals, and no transfer fee, is it really a move that the Cherries can look away from?
Jermain would make an impact if he joined AFCB.
All the initiations appear to be coming from the Cherries on this story and the press are fairly certain a deal is being done. Defoe as an ex-player is bound to feel some connection with AFCB but is it enough for him to sigh? I would be surprised if many of their Premier League clubs would offer a three tear deal, but you know you are getting quality with Defoe. He hits the target and that is something that has been often missing in the Cherries play.

I can see Defoe running off of King and getting into advanced position to punish teams, but it will not be good news for Callum Wilson or Lys Mousset if AFCB bring in a top- quality striker. AFCB need to add that experience and guile though to push the club on to a higher finish and while Defoe is getting older, his sharpness in front of goal has not diminished and he is always looking to shoot.

While the signing of a 34-year-old seems a risk for any club, the proof of just how good Jermain is, in a struggling team like Sunderland, is testament to what a good player he is. His 15 goals for Sunderland show just what he can do for a relegated side, but imagine what he could do with the supply from AFCB 's players. It's just, a three-year deal seems a tad excessive. AFCB should look to a one-year deal with possibility to renew, if they are to keep players who come to the club wanting to do their best to see out their careers. AFCB can't reward for past performances. They need someone that can deliver right now, but that is exactly what makes Defoe a viable striking candidate despite know he is comingto the end of his career.

Cherries on the move - three U21's are released by AFCB Callum Buckley, Jake McCarthy and Matt Neale.
