Yann Kermorgant has said his two-year spell at Bournemouth was the ‘best thing in my career’ and has thanked the club’s fans following his move to Reading.
Kermorgant netted 17 times during the Cherries’ promotion push last season, but has had limited opportunities this season and fell down the pecking order following the arrival of club-record signing Benik Afobe.
After completing his move to the Royals on Wednesday, the 34-year-old says Bournemouth will ‘stay in my heart and life’.
“When you hear your name sang at every game both home and away and your family can hear the song, it gives you such a good feeling that you’ve done a good job,” he told Bournemouth’s official website.
“I’d like to thank the fans for that, I think it has been the best time of my career.
“It was one of my best decisions to sign for the club, I’d just won League One title with Charlton but signed here to have an ambition to push for more. We won the league with a perfect season and it was like a dream.
“Last season was a perfect one, as a group we did so well and every single player did so well get the title. Being in the last minute at Charlton I couldn’t dream of anything better.
“Now, I will follow AFC Bournemouth’s results and it will stay in my heart and life as the best thing in my career.”
