Sky Sports understands that Eunan O'Kane will be turning out in League One next season after completing a move to Bournemouth from Torquay.
The 22-year-old midfielder is believed to have penned a three-year contract with the Cherries.
O'Kane has spent the last two years with Torquay, making over 100 appearances for the League Two outfit.
He has helped to put them in contention for promotion, but the Gulls remain a fourth tier outfit for now.
They were always going to find it difficult to hang on to their prized assets this summer, and Bournemouth have swooped to secure O'Kane's signature.
The Republic of Ireland U21 international becomes the latest fresh face drafted in by new Cherries boss Paul Groves.
