Dutch striker Frank Demouge took another step closer to officially becoming an AFC Bournemouth player on Monday.
Demouge was reportedly recommended to AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves by Cherries Russian co-owner Maxim Demin and last month the Cherries agreed a deal with Dutch side FC Utrecht to sign the now 30 year old forward on a free transfer.
Demouge agreed a two year contract to move to Dean Court and on Monday he completed his medical and is now just awaiting international clearance before he officially becomes AFC Bournemouth's third signing of the summer.
6ft 3in Demouge, came through the youth system at Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie, before moving on to FC Eindhoven, FC Den Bosch and Willem II Tilburg before moving to Eredivisie side FC Utrecht in August 2010, initially on loan before making the move permanent last summer.
He scored 8 goals in 26 appearances during his first season with Utrecht, including one goal against Napoli in the UEFA Europa League.
Last season he scored 7 goals in 23 appearances, with five of those goals coming in his final four appearances of the season.
Demouge told afcb.co.uk...
'It was my dream to play in England. Now I'm 30-years-old and it's the right moment, I've played in the Premier League in Holland for almost 11 years and I know that league, and I'm looking forward to playing here and I hope I can help the club.
'Everyone watches English football and there are a lot of Dutch players in the Premier League. I spoke to a couple of them and they said it was great to play here. I know this is a lower level but I hope to find my way here as soon as possible.'
'I feel good. I feel fit, They play a lot of games here and in Holland we are not used to playing as many games as this, but everyone wants to play games and I want to play as much as possible.'
