Report: Championship Club Pursuing Harry Arter Loan Deal

Report: Championship Club Pursuing Harry Arter Loan Deal

Republic of Ireland midfielder Harry Arter looks set for a drop down to Championship football this season.

Bournemouth have deemed the 29-year-old surplus to requirements and he spent last season on loan with Cardiff City. The Premier League club recently signed midfielder Philip Billing from Huddersfield for £15million.

Arter played for Eddie Howe's outfit in 0-0 friendly draw at West Brom this week but, per the Bournemouth Echo, has been linked with a move to Fulham.

The recently relegated side are now managed by his brother-in-law Scott Parker.

Speaking after last week's friendly, Howe said Arter's future has not been decided either way yet.

We’ll see. I think it’s difficult to give definitive answers with a period of time left in the window but I suppose the best thing I can say is how much I respect and love the player and the person.

It’s a two-way process. We’ve got to both come together and decide what’s right for us and for Harry.

Arter played 25 games for Cardiff last season and stood out as the most two-footed passer in the league.
