Bournemouth’s Ivorian attacker Max Gradel has joined French Ligue 1 side Toulouse on a season-long loan deal.
Sky Sports reports that the Cherries have relented in allowing the Elephants player to leave for the 2017/18 campaign, having already rejected a bid from Toulouse to sign the player permanently.
Gradel has already departed for France and will link up with his new teammates ahead of their clash against Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain this weekend.
The 29-year-old has struggled to gain regular playing time at Bournemouth since his arrival from St Etienne in 2015.
Gradel suffered cruciate ligament damage early in his Cherries career and has also spent a chunk of last season away from the club representing his country at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
