Ryan Fredericks has departed West Ham and joined newly promoted Bournemouth on a free transfer.

The defender, who has spent 4 years in East London, joins Cherries manager Scott Parker, another former Hammer, on a 2 year contract.

Fredericks stated that Parker was a key reason for joining the club, and is excited to get started on his new venture when talking to the Bournemouth official website.

The West Ham Way would like to wish Ryan all the very best for his move to Bournemouth and future career.
