SIGNING | Glovers swoop for Dobre

Exciting winger signs on loan from AFC Bournemouth

11 January 2019

Highly-rated winger Alex Dobre has joined on loan for the remainder of the season from AFC Bournemouth, the club is excited to announce.

The Romania Under-21 international arrives in Somerset for a third spell away from the Premier League outfit after enjoying loan spells in League One with Bury and Rochdale last season.

Born in Bucharest, Dobre was snapped up by the Cherries from Romanian top-flight outfit Viitorul Constanta, who are managed and now owned by ex-Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder Gheorghe Hagi.

Spending time in Lancashire with both the Shakers and the Dale, the exciting attacker was rewarded with a new deal at the Vitality Stadium in May 2018 to extend his stay on the south coast to at least the end of the 2018/19 campaign. 

Joining Eddie Howe's first-team for their pre-season training camp in La Manga back in the summer, the 20-year-old now heads to Huish Park for the next stage of his development. 

The latest player to strengthen the links between Town and the Cherries, Darren Way told "It's taken a lot of hard work and consideration from AFC Bournemouth to get this deal over the line. 

"I'd like to thank Eddie Howe for allowing an international talent to continue his development with us."
