The striker swapped Liverpool for Bournemouth for £19million in search of more regular first-team football
Dominic Solanke says Jadon Sancho’s success in Germany has encouraged young players who want more game time to move clubs.
Solanke made a £19million switch from Liverpool to Bournemouth this month after finding first team opportunities under Jurgen Klopp limited.

He made 27 appearances for the Reds but had not featured at all this season.
The 21-year-old used the example of Sancho as a reason why top young talents will not be happy to just sit on the bench.
Sancho moved to Dortmund in 2017 and has thrived at the German club.

“That [Sancho’s success at Dortmund] has affected everyone,” said Solanke.
“When one young player sees another young player doing that they think they can do it as well, especially when everyone is playing at international level together.
“Sancho is doing well in Germany and a lot of players would like to follow his path. What he’s done, getting into the England team at such a young age, it will influence a lot of young players.”

“You want to show what you can do and I’m definitely looking forward to playing here.”
