MANCHESTER City have completed their deal to sign defender Nathan Ake from Cherries.

The Dorset club last week accepted a bid from the Citizens, understood to be £41million for the Dutchman, who tonight put pen to paper to secure the switch.

The move brings to an end the centre-back’s 121-game spell at Vitality Stadium. Ake had signed for Cherries from Chelsea for £20million in the summer of 2017 following a successful loan spell.

He did not feature in Cherries’ final three league fixtures after sustaining a groin problem while putting in a heroic block during the club’s 4-1 victory over Leicester last month.

That was the final act of Ake in a Cherries shirt, having captained the side on the night.

The switch to join Pep Guardiola’s side also caps a memorable few days for the former Feyenoord youngster, who got engaged to girlfriend Kaylee earlier this week.

Following Ake’s departure, Cherries still have the likes of centre-back options Steve Cook, Chris Mepham, Lloyd Kelly and Jack Simpson.
