LONDON: Bournemouth have signed Burkinabe forward Dango Ouattara from Lorient on a five-and-a-half-year contract, the Premier League club said on Thursday. The 20-year-old winger made 18 league appearances, scored six goals and provided six assists with the Ligue 1 side this season. “We are pleased to secure the services of Dango, a promising and sought-after player with a great deal of potential,” said Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake. “We have been monitoring him for a period of time and he fits the profile of the young, ambitious, hungry and hard-working player this club is looking to recruit. Bournemouth are 17th in the Premier League and host Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
