Bournemouth new player Jermain Defoe has been dragged into a messy love triangle ahead of the start of the new season.

Heart FM radio presenter Ben Weston claimed that the England international cheated with his sales rep wife and caused him to split with her.

Weston claims Defoe slept with his woman after visiting her bathroom showroom. Defoe is reportedly horrified about being dragged into all of this before the new season resumes. Defoe met the woman at her showroom last year and she showed off pictures of her enjoying a football game which the player reportedly got her. The couple ended their union this year and this might just be a get-back-at-her episode but Defoe is angry at the link nonetheless.

Defoe was also in somewhat similar mess last year. Rachel Calvert left her Newcastle United-supporting hubby Tony for Defoe last year. The 24-year old left her dockworker husband who she was married to for two years to move in with the former Sunderland man.

Coach Eddie Howe signed the player with the hope that he would boost the team’s attack in the league next season. The manager has tried to match expectations since reaching the top flight in 2015.The 39-year old is already dreaming of European football of which Defoe needs to be at his best to help the team qualify.

Begovic and Nathan Ake have joined the team with the hopes that they can boost the team’s performance when the league begins. Both players had stellar performances while on loan before they were signed permanently. Joshua King finished with 16 goals last term, one more than Defoe but they are expected to partner up from August 12.
