Out-of-contract Joey Barton is set to join West Ham United.
The former Newcastle United midfielder has been without a club since leaving Queens Park Rangers at the end last season.
Barton – who spent four years at St James’s Park earlier in his career – is undergoing a medical at West Ham.
The 32-year-old was in the stands for Bournemouth’s first Premier League game at the weekend.
Barton had been working for BBC Sport.
