Bournemouth have signed Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old England right-back has struggled with injury and played only five games last season.

He has made two starts in five appearances this term and is behind Trent Alexander-Arnold in the pecking order at Anfield.

"I'm really excited by this opportunity. It's a great chance for me to come and play football," Clyne said.

"It's a great club with a great story. I can't wait to get going."

Clyne, who was also a target for Cardiff City, joined Liverpool from Southampton for £12.5m in 2015.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe added: "Naturally he wants to play football and is very keen to bring his attributes to the team. We're excited about what he can deliver for us."

Bournemouth were without a recognised right-back because captain Simon Francis has been ruled out for up to nine months with a ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament, and Adam Smith has been out since November after having knee surgery.

The Cherries completed the £19m signing of England striker Dominic Solanke from Liverpool earlier on Friday.
