Bournemouth clinched automatic promotion from the Championship with a 1-0 win over rivals Nottingham Forest at the Vitality Stadium.

Dembele was an unused substitute and started just four Championship games for the Cherries following his move, scoring two goals. He was used eight times from the substitutes’ bench.

Posh will also receive another million pounds from Ivan Toney’s £10million transfer package to Brentford in August 2020 when the Bees confirm their survival as a Premier League club this season. They need a point from two games to make sure.
