Matt Worthington has completed a permanent switch to Yeovil Town from Bournemouth.

Worthington, who came through the youth academy at Bournemouth, has agreed a deal to join Yeovil until at least the summer of 2021.

The 21-year-old re-joins the Glovers after playing 19 games for Darren Way’s team at the start of last season.

Worthington spent the first six months of this campaign on loan at League Two side Forest Green Rovers.

Yeovil boss Way said, as quoted by Daily Echo: “Matt has cut his teeth in the EFL now following his spell with us and Forest Green.”

“It means we secure the services of a very promising player who knows what the division is all about, most importantly on a long-term deal that shows what this club is trying to achieve.”

Worthington became Bournemouth’s second player to come from the youth setup to feature in the Premier League when he came on as a substitute at Leicester in May 2017.

The English midfielder could link up with Cherries youngster Alex Dobre, who is on loan at Yeovil, when the Glovers face Notts County this weekend.

Meanwhile, Jordan Holmes has signed for St Mirren on loan until the end of the season.
