Bond is relishing the next chapter of his career and is excited to get going. He has said, as per BT Sport:

"“I feel ready. It’s the next stage of my development – to do it consistently and show that I can. They have a lot of pedigree and it’s a great platform. I’m so excited. It’s one of the most famous clubs in the world and to have the opportunity to play for a team like that is massive. I’m going there to play, it’s a huge opportunity to play regularly and get some full seasons at a high level. I was hoping and praying it was going to go through because these things are never guaranteed, they are always complicated.”"
