Demouge set for permanent Dean Court departure

Demouge set for permanent Dean Court departure

AFC Bournemouth striker Frank Demouge could be set to leave the Cherries on a permanent deal with Roda JC.

Sky Sports has reported that...

Roda JC are eager to bring former loan star Frank Demouge back to the club on a permanent transfer from Bournemouth.

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 during that summer.

He scored 8 goals in 26 appearances during his first season with Utrecht, including one goal against Napoli in the UEFA Europa League.

During his final season in Eredivisie he scored 7 goals in 23 appearances, with five of those goals coming in his final four appearances of the season.

Demouge was reportedly recommended to then Cherries manager Paul Groves by Cherries Russian co-owner Maxim Demin and in June 2012 he agreed a two year deal to move to England.

After a slow introduction to the English game, with Demouge admitting he wasn't used to the physical aspects of pre-season training in England, the Dutchman made one brief appearance in a friendly, only to go off early with a knee injury.

That knee injury kept him on the sidelines for around two months, but he finally made his Cherries debut, starting against Walsall at the end of September. He went on to play the full 90 minutes and started again a few days later away to Crawley.

However he only lasted eleven minutes in the game after sustaining concussion.

It proved to be Paul Groves final game in charge of the club and under new manager Eddie Howe, Demouge failed to break into the side.

After reports that he had rejected the chance to join League Two side Aldershot on loan he joined Dutch club Roda JC an Eredivisie side based in Kerkrade for the remainder of the 2012/13 season.

He made eleven appearances following his return to the Eredivisie, scoring six goals.

Previous reports had suggested that Demouge had failed a recent medical ahead of a permanent switch back to Holland. But Roda have strongly denied the speculation.

Roda's general director Marcel van den Bunder told Voetbal International...

'That's nonsense. We haven't even tested him medically.

'We are in the waiting room for him. First he had to work things out with Bournemouth. Hopefully that will happen and after that we can start talks.'


Whilst a statement on rodajc.nl loosely translates as stating...

'...This story is completely unfounded...'

'...Normally we do not go in between Bournemouth and Roda JC Kerkrade on rumours about players, but we find it extremely annoying for Frank Demouge that such a message without mercy in the world is thrown. '
