The Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings, the club’s record signing, has been ruled out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The left-back, who joined from Ipswich for £8m this summer, was taken off on a stretcher six minutes into his debut against Leicester City last weekend, after replacing Charlie Daniels at half-time. Daniels, who started all four of Bournemouth’s Premier League games, is also expected to miss a month of matches with a knee injury.

Mings had been expected to miss three months but a post on the defender’s Facebook account stated he could face up to a year on the sidelines.

Mings said: “Worse news than first anticipated … tore my medial cruciate ligament and my anterior cruciate ligament. Will be out for 9-12 months, having surgery next Wednesday.”

Eddie Howe, the Bournemouth manager, strengthened his defensive ranks with the loan signing of Joe Bennett from Aston Villa on deadline day. Bennett will provide cover for injured left-sided defenders Mings and Daniels, after signing a six-month loan contract. Howe also boosted his attacking options with the £4m signing of striker Glenn Murray from Crystal Palace.

Another summer signing, the Ivorian winger Max Gradel, also sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the 1-1 draw against Leicester and is expected to miss around six months of action.

Gradel joined Bournemouth for £7m from St Étienne this summer. Both Gradel and Mings were omitted from the 25-man squad Bournemouth submitted to the Premier League for the first half of the season on Thursday.

The midfielder Harry Arter, who is yet to play this season after seeking medical treatment overseas for a groin injury, has been named in the squad and is moving closer to a first-team return. The club can redeclare the squad in January.

The Bournemouth captain Tommy Elphick will be out of action for at least eight weeks after surgery on an ankle injury.

The club captain travelled to Sweden to see a specialist known for his work with Zlatan Ibrahimovic after experiencing discomfort following a routine challenge in training.

Having initially been given a positive diagnosis it was hoped he would swiftly return but the discomfort remained and he has since been operated on in an attempt to cure his condition.

“Tommy’s had an operation on his ankle so he’s facing around 10 weeks out,” said the Bournemouth manager, Eddie Howe.

“It was innocuous, really. It was a kick on the ankle and, despite many attempts to come back, it just didn’t feel right. With further investigation it was discovered that he needed an operation.

“He’s had it, he’s two weeks in. Ten weeks is the estimate but it could be longer than that.”

Elphick’s injury is the latest to undermine Howe’s plans in an already difficult start to the season for the promoted club. Callum Wilson, Tyrone Mings and Max Gradel – the last two the most expensive signings in the club’s history – are unlikely to play again in 2015-16 after each suffered anterior cruciate ligament injuries.

Howe, however, expects his squad to be strengthened by the imminent return of Harry Arter from a groin problem after the midfielder played for Bournemouth Under-21s against Colchester on Monday.

“He will need more training time, more game time,” said Howe. “Sometimes you don’t know what happens and whether you’re forced to put players in before you want to, but at the moment I’d say another week or possibly longer before he’s considered for selection.”

Bournemouth, who lie 15th, visit the leaders Manchester City on Saturday.

Eddie Howe has signed a new contract to remain as Bournemouth manager beyond 2018.

The 37-year-old was already committed to the club for the coming two and a half years, but has negotiated a lengthier stay – believed to be until 2020 – after a clause in his previous contract was activated by their recent promotion.

As well as providing Howe with a rare – by Premier League managerial standards – job security, the development also represents a significant coup for Bournemouth, given their highly rated former defender is widely considered a potential England manager.

“I am delighted that Eddie has committed his future to the club,” the owner, Maxim Demin, said.

“Eddie and I have a very close relationship, we speak every day and we trust each other implicitly when making decisions that affect the football club.

“The mutual respect we have for each other has helped create a unique bond at the top of the club and has acted as the foundation for all of our recent successes.

“Together we have managed to achieve a great deal in a short space of time, and I have complete faith in Eddie and his management team to establish AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League over the coming seasons.”

Signed Iturbe on loan from Roma until the end of the season

They need some reinforcements as the squad is so thin with long term injuries they need to start rotating to keep guys fresh.

Signed Benik Afobe from Wolves for around £10m

Good signing I think even if they go down he'll be a useful goal scorer in Championship but if he can make the step up he might help keep them up

I think they will be safe.

Aston Villa are gone. I don't think Sunderland survive this year so you're looking for one other. I'm gonna go with Norwich

Villa look gone that clubs a mess but I think everyone else in the bottom half is at risk you always get one team who hits free fall.

My concern for Bournemouth will be fatigue will the players tire in the second half as they have had so many injuries he hasn't been able to rotate very much to keep it fresh.

Hope they stay up I like the way they play they have a go at everyone and that's how football should be played.

Bournemouth have resigned striker Lewis Grabban from Norwich for £8m only 24 hours after they spent a club-record £9m on the Wolves striker Benik Afobe.

Grabban, who moved to Carrow Road from Bournemouth in 2014 for around £3m, has been a target for Eddie Howe for some time and the manager had three bids for him turned down in the summer. At the time Norwich were reluctant to sell and the club suspended the former Crystal Palace trainee for leaving the team hotel without permission before their League Cup victory at Rotherham in August, despite being named on the bench.

However, with Norwich hoping to complete the signing of Everton’s Steven Naismith for £8m, their manager Alex Neil has sanctioned Grabban’s departure, meaning Bournemouth have spent more than £20m on strikers since the end of August, having also signed Glenn Murray from Palace for an initial £3m.

Grabban, who has scored one Premier League goal this season, against Arsenal at the end of November, will face stiff competition for a starting place at Bournemouth although he did find the net 22 times for them in the 2013-14 season. “So happy to have signed at Bmouth once again and can’t wait to get going,” the 27-year-old wrote on Twitter. “Thanks for all the messages welcoming me back.”

Howe added: “We’re really pleased to be bringing Grabbs back to Bournemouth. It was such a long drawn out transfer but we’re delighted it’s been done.

“He had such a good time for us, scored goals, worked incredibly hard and it’s a good fit for us. He’ll bring enthusiasm and the benefit of Grabbs is that he knows how we play.

“I think we’ll be getting a better Lewis Grabban, but he’ll realise that we’ve got better as well and he will have to adapt too. But we’re in no doubt we’re getting a good player back.

“He’s also someone who was popular in the dressing room, behind the scenes he’s a strong motivator and we’re delighted to be bringing him back.”

The one-time Arsenal striker Afobe was unveiled on Monday having signed a four-and-half-year deal. His former manager, Arsène Wenger, said he was “very happy” for the 22-year-old while Howe is predicting big things for his new signing.

“He is entering a new league and that is going to be a big experience for him but we believe he can make the step up,” Howe said. “He is strong, you just look at him and know he is going to be a handful, but he has good technique.

“I am excited by that because I think there is a lot of potential in him and he is a really good age, and I think there are a lot of good years ahead of him.”

Bournemouth are still waiting for international clearance for the Argentina international Juan Iturbe, who signed on loan until the end of the season, but they hope he may be available for Tuesday night’s home game with West Ham.

Nathan Ake has joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan from Chelsea, the London club have announced.

The Dutchman, who can play at left-back and in midfield, spent last season on loan at Watford.

A story on chelseafc.com read: “Nathan Ake will spend the 2016-17 season on loan at Bournemouth.

“The 21-year-old moves to the south coast having also spent last season in the Premier League at Watford, where his performances at left-back won the club’s young player of the year award and helped them reach the FA Cup semi-final.”

Ake, a Holland Under-21 international, signed a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge last year and has made 12 appearances for his parent club.

Bournemouth have signed Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe on a four-year deal for a club record £15m.

Ibe, 20, made 58 appearances for Liverpool after joining them from Wycombe Wanderers in 2011.

The England Under-21 winger was not a regular starter under Jurgen Klopp and was given permission to speak to the Cherries at the start of July.

"We're looking forward to seeing him to grow, he's a huge prospect," said chief executive Neil Blake.

Ibe made 12 Premier League starts for Liverpool last year and scored in the Reds final league game of the season at West Brom.

League Two side Wycombe, who had a sell-on clause after Ibe moved to Anfield, said they would discuss financial implications with Liverpool.

Ibe is Bournemouth's fifth signing of the season after Leeds United midfielder Lewis Cook joined the side on Friday.

Bournemouth forward Jordon Ibe was robbed at knifepoint when thieves rammed his car just four days after suspected gunmen allegedly threatened West Ham striker Andy Carroll.

The 20-year-old Ibe had his watch stolen after his car was struck in Surrey Quays, south-east London, it has emerged.

The attack came after England international Carroll, 27, was the victim of an alleged attempted robbery as he drove home from a training session on November 2.

Scotland Yard said detectives were investigating the attack on Ibe, which took place near Surrey Quays Underground station at around 1.45pm on November 6.

The Sun reported that the assailants made off with the footballer’s £25,000 Rolex.

A Met Police spokesman said:

“One of the suspects threatened the victim with a knife before stealing his watch. The victim was not injured.

“At this early stage, officers are investigating whether the suspects intentionally collided with the victim’s car.”

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic described Carroll as “very brave” after the player was allegedly targeted as he drove his Mercedes G-Wagon back to his home in Essex from the club’s Rush Green training ground.

Jack O’Brien, 22, of Ivyhouse Road, Dagenham, east London, is due to appear in court charged with a string of offences, including attempted robbery in connection with Mr Carroll.


My guess is it's just gangs targeting people driving flash cars rather than just footballers but it must be a horrible thing to have happen to you.

I think they've got a chance of signing Wilshere but I don't see Chelsea selling Ake they need a bigger squad next season
