Fleetwood Town complete capture of Premier League defender

17 August 2017

Fleetwood Town are delighted to confirm the signing of AFC Bournemouth defender Baily Cargill on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old links up with Uwe Rosler’s side just five months after making his Premier League debut against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Cargill became the first player in the Cherries’ history to play for the first team in the top flight after coming through the club’s academy set up.

A left-footed centre half by trade, Cargill has also represented England at under 20 level, scoring on his debut against Canada in November 2014.

Head coach, Uwe Rosler, added: “We are delighted to welcome Baily to Fleetwood Town. He is a player that we have had on our radar for some time and we have followed his progress very closely.

“He is a left-sided centre half and will provide great balance to our team in a position that we have been looking to fill.

“Baily had a lot of offers on the table, so we are happy to have fought off competition from a number of clubs to sign him. I would like to thank Eddie Howe at AFC Bournemouth for allowing Baily to join us, where we are sure he will continue his development.”
