Soccer – Bournemouth switch suits Begovic

Asmir Begovic is looking forward to starting a new chapter in his career after agreeing to move from Chelsea to Bournemouth. The 29-year-old Bosnia and Herzegovina international enjoyed a brief loan spell with the Cherries a decade ago, making eight appearances during his time with the club. He made more than 170 appearances for Stoke City before moving to Chelsea two years ago but he only featured in 19 Premier League matches during his time at Stamford Bridge. "Bournemouth is an exciting, ambitious club which has everything in place for a very bright future," said Begovic. "Being part of a title-winning team at Chelsea was amazing but I felt now was the right time to move on because I want to be playing regular football." Bournemouth are 11/2 with bet365 to be relegated from the Premier League in the 2017/18 season, while Brighton are 6/5 to go down.
