Elphick completes Bournemouth move
Tommy Elphick has completed his move from Albion to Bournemouth on a three-year deal.
The 24-year-old central defender heads west for an undisclosed fee believed to be in six figures.
Cherries open the League One season with a South Coast derby against Portsmouth, with whom Elphick was also linked.
Brighton-born Elphick missed the whole of last season with an Achilles injury but recovered in time to start pre-season with the rest of the squad.
He made 180 appearances for the club, scoring nine times including the memorable first-half equaliser at Aston Villa in the FA Cup.
Albion boss Gus Poyet said: "Having given Tommy a one-year contract towards the end of last season, he has come back from a major injury in pre-season and proved himself.
"However, he is keen to play regular first-team football and, with Gordon Greer, Lewis Dunk and Adam El-Abd all vying for those positions, we cannot guarantee him that.
"I understand he wants to play and not sit in the stands and therefore I thank him for his service to the club and wish him the very best with Bournemouth in the future."
