The 25-year-old joined the south coast outfit from Juventus in the summer of 2017, and he has played 52 matches across all competitions for them since, scoring two goals and providing a further two assists.

A lack of consistency and injury issues – especially between December and April last season – have meant that he has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the starting XI, and he only made one start in the five Premier League matches when he did return towards the end of 2018/19 under Ralph Hasenhuttl.
