McDermott leaves Bournemouth

Midfielder Donal McDermott has left Bournemouth after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

McDermott made 35 appearance for the club across two spells but has not featured since a Capital One Cup tie with Watford in August.

"Donal wanted to go back to Ireland and we agreed to that, it didn't work out for him here and the club has moved on," Eddie Howe told the Bournemouth Echo.

"We wish him all the best in his future career and we now look to reshape our squad for next season.

"As a player, Donal has undoubted ability but we didn't really see it on a consistent basis and it has been frustrating for him and us that it did not work out. Hopefully, he will get his career back on track."
