Bournemouth midfielder Max Gradel has joined Toulouse on a season-long loan deal.
Sky Sports News reported on Tuesday that the winger was set for a temporary switch to the Ligue 1 club, after Bournemouth rejected a permanent bid from Toulouse earlier this summer - with Cherries boss Eddie Howe saying the player was a key part of his plans.
Gradel will now join up with his new team-mates ahead of Toulouse' game against Paris Saint-Germain this weekend.
The forward's progress has been hampered by injury in his two years at Bournemouth after he damaged a cruciate ligament just four games after arriving from Saint-Etienne.
The 29-year-old, who also spent a chunk of last season away at the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast, has started just 11 Premier League games for the club.
Gradel joined Bournemouth from St Etienne for £3m in August 2015 but he has scored just two goals 27 appearances in all competitions.
