Cape Town - Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has joined fellow Premier League outfit Bournemouth on a season-long loan agreement.

The 22-year-old becomes Eddie Howe's fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey, Philip Billing and Arnaut Danjuma.

Following previous spells with Crewe and Hull, Wilson spent last season on loan at Derby where he scored 17 times in 46 appearances as the Rams reached the Championship play-off final.

Wilson said he was excited to now get his chance in the Premier League.

"It's great to be here, great to finally get everything sorted and I can't wait to meet all the staff and the lads," Wilson said on the club's website.

"When Liverpool informed me it was a possibility to come here I was keen to get it sorted. I want to play Premier League football and with a great team like Bournemouth.

"With the style of play that Bournemouth are likely to play, I feel that I can fit right in and help the team a lot."
