Norwich City midfielder Andrew Surman is reportedly on the verge of joining newly-promoted Championship outfit Bournemouth on a season-long loan deal.

Norwich City midfielder Andrew Surman will reportedly join newly-promoted Championship side Bournemouth on a season-long loan deal.

The 26-year-old featured in 25 league matches in Norwich's first season back in the Premier League in 2011-12, but managed just four outings last term because of injury.

Despite playing for the Canaries in pre-season, the South Africa-born midfielder is now set for a year in the Championship with Eddie Howe's Bournemouth, according to BBC Radio Solent sports editor Adam Blackmore.

If the move is completed in time, then Surman could be available for the Cherries' opening game of the season against Charlton Athletic on Saturday.
