MATTHEWS’ WELSH CALL-UP AS BORUC SIGNS ON

0
CELTIC defender Adam Matthews has been recalled to the Welsh Euro 2016 squad.
The Hoops defender was injured last time out, but boss Chris Coleman has brought him back for next month’s crunch tie against Belgium.
Matthews could line up alongside Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale against Eden Hazard and Co when they face the Group B leaders at a sold-out Cardiff City Stadium on Friday, June 12.
Leicester midfielder Andy King returns after serving a two-match ban for his red card in the qualifier against Cyprus last October, while Newcastle defender Paul Dummett also returns after injury.
Marc Wilmots’ side, who lead the table on goal difference, will be without suspended captain Vincent Kompany, sent off against Israel when Hoops’ on-loan defender Jason Denayer made his international debut.
Meanwhile former Celtic keeper Artur Boruc has agreed a permanent move to newly-promoted Bournemouth.
The Polish international spent the season on loan at the Cherries from Southampton after losing his place to £10million ex-Celt Fraser Forster.
 Boruc, 35, will join on an initial 12-month deal with the option of a further year.
He said: “As soon as I came here, I saw a bunch of lads who were really working hard and they had their minds on football.
“In my life, I’ve never seen a group who have worked so hard and been as professional as possible.

“It’s probably the first season I’ve seen what it is to be a professional footballer from the way they are on the training ground to everything else.”

Boruc joined Italian outfit Fiorentina in 2010 after spending five years at Parkhead. He moved to St Mary’s three seasons ago and made 50 appearances before Forster arrived from the Hoops in August.
