Ireland midfielder Harry Arter is reportedly set to link up with his brother-in-law Scott Parker at Fulham on a season long loan from Bournemouth.

According to SunSport, Arter has already passed a medical at the Championship club with the deal expected to be announced within the next 24 hours.

The report also claims that a move for Arter would include a clause that would allow Fulham to turn the loan deal into a permanent move next summer should they achieve promotion.

Arter would also be linking up with a family member at Craven Cottage should he sign, with brother-in-law Scott Parker the man tasked with getting Fulham back to the Premier League.

The 29-year old spent last season on loan at Cardiff City and impressed despite suffering relegation with the Bluebirds, featuring 25 times in the league.

Arter had previously been heavily involved in Bournemouth’s pre-season but was left out of the squad for their last two games against Lazio and Lyon as he talk of his exit heightened.

The arrival of midfielder Phillip Biling from Huddersfield for £15 million also pushed Arter further back in the pecking order at the Vitality Stadium.

A move for Arter would also provide a boost to his international career which has somewhat stagnated since the arrival of Mick McCarthy, with the midfielder only featuring in 18 minutes in the four games in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Arter was also the embroiled in a bust up with former assistant manager Roy Keane in September of last year which saw him take a brief hiatus from international football, before returning to the squad just over a month later.
