In total Distin has racked up four hundred and thirty-eight Premier League appearances, by far and away the most amount by any overseas outfield player in the division’s history.
Bournemouth have been busy in the transfer window since gaining promotion, having already brought in goalkeeper Artur Boruc, forward Joshua King and winger Christian Atsu, who has joined on a season-long loan from Chelsea.
