Bournemouth have signed Chelsea full-back Nathan Ake on a season-long loan.

Ake, 21, spent last season on loan at Watford, playing 28 times as the club finished 13th in the Premier League and reached the FA Cup semi-final.

The Netherlands Under-21 defender was the Hornets’ young player of the year.

Ake signed a new five-year contract at Chelsea[1] last summer and has made 12 first-team appearances for the Blues, as well as playing five times for Reading during a 2015 loan spell.
