BOURNEMOUTH CLOSE TO SMART DEAL TO RE-SIGN 30-CAP STAR

Vina joined the Cherries on loan in January last season, and played a crucial role in securing then-manager Gary O’Neil’s side’s Premier League status for another season. The 25-year-old impressed in the Premier League and even contributed two goals to the south coast club’s cause.

When Bournemouth initially brought the Uruguayan in on loan, they had an option to make his stay permanent for a fee of £12.9 million, but the club opted to allow the deadline on that deal to elapse. Bournemouth have now returned to the negotiating table with Roma to try and land their man for a lower price.

Should Bournemouth bring back Matias Vina?

New Bournemouth boss Andoni Iraola clearly agrees with his predecessor O’Neil that Vina could be a long-term success at the Vitality Stadium. However, in a summer where the club know they need to strengthen in order to successfully negotiate a second season in the top flight, they have made a smart move by pushing the Italian capital club for a better deal. Every penny counts for the Cherries, and signing Vina for less than was previously agreed would represent something of a bargain.

The 30-cap international left-back has plenty of experience and potential to improve. There would be no ‘settling in’ period needed were he to return, and Iraola would expect him to build on the performances he put in last season. Vina’s arrival on a permanent basis would be great news for Bournemouth.
