Bournemouth have boosted their squad with the signing of veteran former Southampton utility man Jo Tessem. The 35-year-old Norwegian spent nearly six years with the Saints earlier in his career and is keen to give life in England another go after leaving Lyn Oslo. Cherries boss Kevin Bond told the club's official website: "His last season didn't end until November so he is in good shape and ready to go. "He has been playing the last two seasons in Norway, so he has been getting regular football. He doesn't miss anything on the ball and he uses it very well. "He has been training with us for the best part of a month and he is a quality player. Hopefully it will prove an ideal move for us and for him."
