Distin officially signed with AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday after a free transfer from Everton.

Distin lost his starting job to John Stones last weekend and Everton had little reason to keep him around. He'll be a solid veteran contributor, though a promoted side is usually not a great place to find a good fantasy centerback.

Distin has agreed to a contract with AFC Bournemouth, the BBC reports.

Distin lost his starting job at Everton last season to John Stones, and with his contract out, he needed to find a new club. It's unclear if he can find his younger form, but he should at least be a solid veteran presence in the dressing room and on the field.

Distin could start Sunday against Tottenham if he can overcome an illness, manager Roberto Martinez said.

Distin hasn't featured since Jan. 6, as Phil Jagielka and John Stones have locked up the centerback positions, but Distin could be given an opportunity to play in front of the Goodison Park faithful one final time before leaving the club this summer.

Distin suffered a groin injury during Tuesday's FA Cup match against West Ham and will be assessed ahead of Saturday's match against Everton.

John Stones is likely to get the start if Distin is unable to go, though the matchup against a high-scoring City side isn't a great one from a fantasy perspective.

Distin is set to face Aston Villa this weekend after missing time recently with dead leg, manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday.

Distin has struggled to stay fully fit this season, but with John Stones out for 10 weeks after having ankle surgery, Distin will be thrown back into the mix against an Aston Villa attack that will welcome back Christian Benteke.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday that he expect Distin to be fit to face Aston Villa on Oct. 18 after the international break. "Sylvain needed a bit of a rest," Martinez said. "He has played a lot of football in pre-season and he is someone who we need to manage his amount of games and his input. He is fully fit, has trained really well and is ready to fight for a place in the team."

Distin should be able to to grab his spot in the starting XI back with John Stones now sidelined for 10-to-14 weeks with an ankle injury. Nevertheless, his fantasy value is very dependent on clean sheets, something the Everton defense have struggled with this season.

Distin (knock) has been sidelined over the last three matches by manager Roberto Martinez despite being "fully fit," the Echo reports.

Martinez is openly limiting the 36-year-old's work load this year so Distin will be available for the long haul of the season. Keeping this in mind, it would be hard to justify owning Distin when there are other options around the league that get consistent playing time.

Distin, who suffered a hamstring injury back on April 20 against Manchester United, did not come off the bench during Saturday's 3-2 loss to Manchester City.

Distin likely would not have provided much fantasy value in defense against Manchester City. He will look to return to the pitch for the final match of the season against Hull City and should have good value should he return.
