Aarons was set to join Leeds and team up with old boss Daniel Farke again.

But the Cherries jumped in to seal the deal, which is an initial £7million with £3million in add-ons.

Bournemouth have been long-time admirers of the 23-year-old and were interested in the right back in January.

Aarons also had interest from Fulham as well as clubs from Germany and Italy in the previous transfer window.

He won the Championship twice with Norwich in 2019 and 2021, staying in a bid to get the Canaries promoted back to the Premier League.

Aarons had entered the final year of his contract at Carrow Road and had made 213 appearances for the club.

He is set to become Bournemouth’s sixth signing of the summer following deals for Hamed Traore, Milos Kerkez, Romain Faivre, Justin Kluivert, Ionut Radu.

New manager Andoni Iraola has two new full-back either side in Aarons and Kerkez.

The club also nearly signed Fiorentina midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli, but he failed a medical.

Bournemouth start their Premier League season on Saturday versus West Ham.
