Bournemouth have signed West Ham midfielder Anthony Edgar on a one-month loan deal.

The Cherries, who are still under a transfer embargo, have been given special dispensation by the Football League to bring one player into their squad due to a lengthy injury list.

Nineteen-year-old Edgar, who has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Hammers, will go straight into the squad for the trip to Port Vale this weekend and he is looking forward to playing for the League Two leaders.

"It's a big challenge and one I'm looking forward to," Edgar told the club's official website.

"There are a number of players down the years who have come here from West Ham and done extremely well, so that is good motivation for me.

"As soon as I was told about Bournemouth's interest, I wanted to come here and take the chance.
