Bournemouth’s Begovic joins AC Milan on loan

Bournemouth have said goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has joined Italian side AC Milan on loan until the end of the season as a replacement for Pepe Reina, who has moved to Aston Villa.

Begovic made 24 league starts last season but lost his place to Aaron Ramsdale and the 32-year-old Bosnian spent the first half of the current campaign on loan at Azerbaijan’s Qarabag.

Media reports in Italy said Begovic could make his Milan debut in Wednesday’s Coppa Italia last 16 clash against SPAL as Gianluigi Donnarumma is nursing a muscle issue.

Spaniard Reina, 37, joined Villa on loan on Monday to provide injury cover after Tom Heaton was ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee problem.
