Arter completes Fulham loan move


Midfielder Harry Arter has joined Fulham on a season-long loan from Bournemouth.

The Republic of Ireland international has ended speculation surrounding his immediate future by signing a season-long loan deal with the London club.

A number of clubs had expressed an interest in the player including Stoke, Sheffield United and Cardiff City, where he spent last season.

Although there was some speculation that he might even stay at Dean Court after impressing in pre-season, he has agreed a move to Craven Cottage where he will link up with brother-in-law Scott Parker.

Parker was appointed full-time manager following the sackings of Slaviša Jokanović and Claudio Ranieri as the club endured a dismal run of form as they were relegated back to the Championship after just a single season in the top flight.

Although it means dropping down a division, Arter spoke of his delight at sealing the move which could be made permanent at the end of the season.

"I'm delighted to be here," he said.

"Fulham is a fantastic club with a lot of ambition who want to get back to the Premier League, and I hope I can help them achieve that this season."
