Huddersfield Town of England midfielder, Phillip Anyanwu Billing moved closer to a summer transfer deal with Bournemouth, after the English Premier League club agreed a £15m fee with his relegated side.
Consequently, the 23-year-old Nigerian-born lad, who played 23 games for The Terriers last season in the EPL, with two goals to his name, is now expected to undergo a medical at Bournemouth and seal a summer switch in the next few hours.
Sky Sports further reports that Billing, who played at the European U21 Championships for Denmark this summer, and has received one senior call-up by the Scandinavian country, is already at Bournemouth’s ground.
Though he is yet to get a squad number at John Smith’s Stadium, when he hopes to make his mark this season, after Huddersfield’s relegation to the English Championship, is happy that The Cherries have agreed to sign him on, which will keep him in the EPL for the coming term.
The Denmark U21 international makes the move on a five-year deal after his future at Huddersfield became subject of much speculation following their demotion at the end of the 2018/19 campaign.
During that time, though, he did not enjoy any good relationship with The Terriers’ manager, Jan Siewert since the German tactician joined the club, but he still made 91 appearances in all competitions, including 43 in the Premier League and scored six goals.
Billing is now expected to undergo a medical on Monday, ahead of his unveiling by Bournemouth, where he will join the Nigerian-born trio of Nnamdi Ofoborh, Jordon Ibe and Dominic Solanke, who have already commenced training with the team, ahead of the new season.
