Davids leaves for Denmark

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Lorenzo Davids has joined Danish side Randers ahead of this evenings transfer deadline.

Davids has signed a two and a half year deal with the SuperLiga side after having his contract at Dean Court terminated by mutual consent.

Davids joined the Cherries just five months ago as a free agent after leaving top flight German Bundesliga side Augsburg where he made 20 appearances during the 2011/12 season.

Before moving to Germany, Davids had also played in the top flight of Dutch football, making over 130 appearances for Eredivisie side Nijmegen Eendracht Combinatie after leaving Feyenoord without making an appearance.

Capped at Under 21's level for Holland the cousin of former Ajax, Milan, Juventus, Barcelona, Inter and Tottenham midfielder Edgar Davids, signed a two year deal with the Cherries when he was brought to Dean Court by former manager Paul Groves.

A knee injury kept the 26 year old on the sidelines before he broke into the side starting Paul Groves two final games in charge of the club against Walsall and Crawley.

He then made a substitute appearance in the victory over Leyton Orient, while Dennis Rofe was in caretaker charge and Eddie Howe was in the stands.

Coming on as a half time substitute for Richard Hughes he impressed with a variety of decent passes, but it proved to be his third and final appearance in a Cherries shirt as he failed to break into the team under new manager Eddie Howe.

Davids told

"I am looking forward to the challenge in Denmark, which puts much emphasis on speed and technique, just as in the Netherlands. I've been teammates with Niki Zimling and Lass Schoene at NEC Nijmegen and played against a capacity as Christian Eriksen and many others, so I can not imagine anything other than that level may be high in the premiership

Meanwhile AFC Bournemouth defender Jon Meades has extended his loan with League Two side AFC Wimbledon until the end of the season.
