Bournemouth have signed Turkey striker Enes Unal on loan from Getafe.

Unal, 26, has scored 36 goals in 109 appearances for the La Liga club since joining from Villareal in 2020.

Previously on the books of Premier League champions Manchester City, he has made 32 appearances for Turkey, scoring twice.

Unal has only played in three La Liga games this season, starting just one match.

“We’re really pleased to welcome Enes to the club and believe he’ll add strength to our front line,” Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said.

“He’s proven that he can score goals in multiple different countries, and we believe he’s got the skillset to succeed in the Premier League.”

Unal was bought by Manchester City in 2015 when he 16, but he made no competitive appearances for the Blues and instead had loan spells with Genk, NAC Breda and Twente.

Six players have left Premier League side Bournemouth on loan in the January window while midfielder Nathan Moriah-Walsh joined Hibernian on a permanent deal.
