Udinese Secures Free Transfer Signing of Jordan Zemura from Bournemouth

In a major move that could significantly bolster their defensive ranks, Italian Serie A club Udinese has announced the signing of Zimbabwean defender Jordan Zemura. The 23-year-old is set to join the club on a four-year contract, which will take effect at the end of this season. With this signing, Zemura becomes the first-ever Zimbabwean player to join a Serie A club in modern football history.

Zemura’s Arrival Comes After Bournemouth Banishment

The signing of Jordan Zemura follows a recent banishment of the Zimbabwean international by his current club, Bournemouth. The Cherries had reportedly banished Zemura from the senior squad’s training sessions for the remainder of the season. As a result, the defender has been training with Bournemouth’s development squad for the remainder of the season.

No Compensation to Be Paid to Bournemouth

Udinese’s signing of Jordan Zemura comes as a free transfer, meaning that the Italian club will not be required to pay any compensation fees to Bournemouth. While the Cherries would have been entitled to such fees via a tribunal if Zemura had signed with another English side, the club will only receive a relatively smaller sum via FIFA’s solidarity payment scheme since the player has moved abroad.

What Zemura’s Arrival Means for Udinese

Jordan Zemura’s arrival at Udinese could provide the Italian side with much-needed depth in their defensive lineup. The Zimbabwean defender is known for his versatility, as he can play both as a left-back and a central defender. Moreover, Zemura’s young age means that he still has plenty of potential for growth and development. As such, the Zimbabwean could represent a long-term investment for Udinese.
