Bournemouth have reportedly reached a decision over an asking price for defender Lloyd Kelly.
Although he cost £13m when arriving from Bristol City in 2019, Kelly has proven to be one of Bournemouth’s most important additions since that transfer.
A total of 110 starts and six substitute outings have been made in league fixtures, Kelly having been a part of Championship promotion and Premier League survival campaigns.READ MORE
The 25-year-old has featured for 637 minutes of Bournemouth’s top-flight season in 2023-24, making seven starts and one substitute appearance, completing the 90 minutes in each of the last four games.
Most notably, Bournemouth have won two of those fixtures, recording valuable home victories over Burnley and Newcastle United to move three points clear of the relegation zone.
However, while head coach Andoni Iraola will be eager to retain the services of the versatile Englishman, Bournemouth officials have a decision to make regarding his future.
Kelly seemingly has little interest in extending his contract past the end of this season, effectively putting him in the shop window with an increasing amount of admirers.
Nevertheless, according to Football Insider, Bournemouth are currently taking the stance where they will be sticking to a £30m asking price.
