The signing comes after Cherries owner Bill Foley bought a 33 per cent stake in Lorient last week – just a month after he took over Bournemouth in a deal believed to be worth around £120million .
The Texas-born businessman is said to have bought a 33 per cent stake in the Ligue 1 team to continue investing at the end of the current season with a view to completing a full takeover in the future.
His performances had attracted the interest of numerous Premier League sides, including contenders West Ham, Southampton and Everton.

After a poor start to the season, Cherries boss Gary O’Neil has improved Bournemouth’s fortunes and they are just a point adrift of the last three.
However, the Cherries have lost their last four Premier League games and have a crucial game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Bournemouth are also considering an offer for Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo, 23.
Recent injuries to Dominic Solanke and Marcus Tavernier have left O’Neil short in attack, something the Cherries are now hoping to strengthen.
