Last updated : 23 June 2012 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

On the recommendation of Maxim Denim, AFC Bournemouth have signed 29 year old, 6ft3, Frank Demouge from FC Utrecht. Demouge will be the 8th striker AFC Bournemouth have on their books.

Assistant manager, Shaun Brooks, was quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo on their new signing as saying: "His name was put to us by Max (Demin) about six weeks ago. In that time, we watched eight to 10 DVDs of his games to see if he was what we were looking for. “We liked what we saw and Frank will give us a physical presence. He is experienced, he knows the game and has played in the top league in Holland. We think he will enhance what we have got and give us a different striking option. It was quite refreshing when we met him. We spoke about where the club was trying to go and he asked about out philosophy and how we try to play. He clearly went away with a good feeling about the club. I think he will be a good asset for the club".
