Milos Kerkez Bournemouth Signing

Last season, Milos Kerkez displayed a strong performance for AZ Alkmaar, bagging five goals and contributing seven assists.

The Premier League club, Bournemouth, has confirmed the addition of the promising Hungary left-back Milos Kerkez to their team from AZ Alkmaar. The details of the fee remain undisclosed.

At just 19, the talented defender has committed to a long-term contract with the club.

Bournemouth is energizing its squad this season, previously welcoming the 24-year-old Dutch forward Justin Kluivert from Roma, and Lyon’s midfielder Romain Faivre, also 24.

The club’s chief executive, Neill Blake, is thrilled with the new addition, describing Kerkez as “an athletic and attacking full-back” and “an excellent addition to our exciting squad.” He adds that Milos is “a talented young player with a great deal of potential.”

Kerkez attracted attention from numerous European clubs but ultimately chose Bournemouth, enticed by the club’s future plans and ambitions.

The promising young player began his career in AC Milan’s youth division before transferring to AZ in January 2022. In his first full season with the Eredivisie club, Kerkez made 52 appearances, contributing significantly to the team’s fourth-place finish in the Dutch top league. His achievements for the season also included five goals and seven assists.

Kerkez also played a crucial role in taking AZ to the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League. The team, unfortunately, lost 3-1 on aggregate to West Ham.

In September, Kerkez debuted on the senior stage for Hungary, impressively playing all 90 minutes of a 1-0 victory over Germany in the Nations League match in Leipzig. He has since earned eight caps.

Next on Bournemouth’s agenda is a pre-season game under new manager Andoni Iraola against Southampton on Tuesday. The club is slated to open their Premier League campaign at home against West Ham on August 12.
