Dutch Nigerian Bournemouth player Arnaut Danjuma has moved to Europa League champions Villarreal from Championship side Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee. Villarreal made Danjuma their prime target earlier this summer and made an offer for the player, but it was rejected.
In their first bid, the Spanish La Liga side made a €20million bid for the player, but the Championship side rejected it. During his time on the south coast, Danjuma played 52 games for the club, and he scored 17 goals for the club.
Arnaut Danjuma Impact in Bournemouth
The 24-year-old was also named in last season’s EFL Championship Team of the Season and won the club’s supporters player of the year award.
He has some Premier League experience, but he played in the Championship with the Cherries last season. The two-time Netherlands international had also played in the Champions League when he was with Clubb Brugge. He made two appearances in the competition for the club.
Arnaut Danjuma will now get the chance to add to that experience in UEFA’s premier competition, with Villarreal participating in the Champions League this season.
