Nothing new there - Laporte still to get back to fitness but Ake was never the answer to their defensive problems.

I thought it pretty odd his value didn't decrease after last season's dreadful performance. For whatever reason I watched a lot of Bournemouth last season - and despite his good presence on the pitch (something pundits talk up about CBs), he looked a shell of the player he was the previous season. Paying that much for the CB of a relegated team that went down because of their defense makes no sense.

It's strange how people scoffed at the idea of Lascelles going for £50m but seemed perfectly happy to justify Ake's cost. "Home grown English premium" etc.

Well, he's backup now anyway with the new fella coming in.

Lascelles looks terrified whenever the ball is near him.

I don't particularly rate Lascelles, I just can't see Ake at anything close to his valuation.

Ake is fine, a bit like Mings I think. A good defender but not amazing and certainly not good enough for a team realistically aiming to win the league or CL.

He'll be an alright squad player for them as the new guy will partner Laporte.
