Irish international midfielder Harry Arter could reportedly be called away from his loan spell at Cardiff City by his parent club Bournemouth amid transfer interest from a host of teams.
Arter has been one of Cardiff’s most impressive players in what’s been a difficult first season back in the Premier League and his performances have caught the eye of a number of potential suitors who reportedly want to take the midfielder on a permanent deal.
The Irish Independent are reporting that Bournemouth may call Arter back from his loan spell in Wales as they look to cash in on his excellent form.
Watford are said to be one of the clubs interested in his services as they begin to look for a replacement for midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré who appears to be on his way out of Vicarage Road.
Aston Villa are another club reportedly interested in Arter who would see himself alongside the likes of fellow Irish internationals Conor Hourihane and recently retired Glenn Whelan in the Villains’ midfield.
Villa are looking to strengthen their side in the January transfer window as they push for promotion from the Championship and a return to the Premier League despite their difficult season thus far.
