AFC Bournemouth have agreed a fee with Charlton for Yann Kermorgant according to Sky Sports News: Kermorgant
The fee is understood to be £500,000, a £100,000 advance on what was offered last week, and Roland Duchatelet has decided to cash in. Uncertainty over the future of Chris Powell has unsettled Kermorgant.
It is worth nothing that as Chris Powell mentioned to the Scottish Daily Record recently when Celtic were eyeing up both Kermit and Morrison is that both are free to agree a pre-contract deal as their contracts end in the Summer and any fee we would get for him (or both) would be likely to be nominal only.
If this is confirmed, I shall be very sorry to see Kermorgant go as the battling Breton has been a great servant to the club. Some of his set pieces have been spectacular. Unfortunately, he has not always got the service he deserved with long balls directed at his head.
Negotiations continue with Brighton and Hove Albion over Dale Stephens. Bournemouth are also reported to have expressed an interest in taking Rhoys Wiggins back who would certainly be a loss.
The club has confirmed that full back Loic Nego has signed on a three-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee from our Hungarian sister club.
