    Jefferson Lerma has nine caps for Colombia

    Colombia midfielder Jefferson Lerma has joined Bournemouth for a club record £25m fee from Spanish side Levante on a five-year deal.

    Lerma played in all Colombia’s matches at the World Cup in Russia, including their last 16 defeat by England.

    He is the Cherries’ third signing of the summer transfer window.

    The Premier League club had already recruited midfielder David Brooks from Sheffield United and full-back Diego Rico from Leganes.

    The fee for Lerma eclipses the £20m Bournemouth paid Chelsea for Dutch defender Nathan Ake last summer.
