Conor Hourihane is likely to leave Aston Villa on loan this month.
The Ireland international's minutes have been limited for Villa this season. He's started just three games and came off the bench in another.
The Athletic reports that Bournemouth are the latest club interested in signing the Cork midfielder who has been told he can leave Villa Park this month.
Bournemouth are currently third in the Championship, and it's said, should they win promotion to the Premier League, a temporary move to Dean Court could become permanent for the 29-year-old.
There are several other clubs who have been linked with Hourihane already this month. Those include Swansea, Middlesbrough and Watford. All are currently in the hunt for promotion.
Hourihane joined Aston Villa from Barnsley in January 2017 while they were in the Championship and helped the club to promotion in the 2018/19 season.
The arrival of Ross Barkley at the club, on loan from Chelsea, has pushed Hourihane down the pecking order at Villa.
