The England international joins the Cherries having been released by Sunderland following their relegation from the Premier League.

Defoe's signing marks his return to the club where he first made headlines during a loan spell from West Ham in 2000-01.

The striker scored 18 goals in 29 appearances for the club, including a run of 12 goals in 10 matches during the second half of the campaign.

Defoe leaves Sunderland having scored 37 goals in two-and-a-half seasons for the Black Cats - form which has seen him earn a recall to the England national side.

He becomes Bournemouth's second signing of the summer following the arrival of Asmir Begovic from Chelsea while Nathan Ake is closing in on £20m move to the south coast.
