We have completed the signing of Nottingham Forest midfielder Harry Arter on loan until May.
The 32-year-old brings vast experience having made nearly 400 career appearances, almost 100 of which came in the Premier League during his spells with Cardiff City and most notably AFC Bournemouth.
Arter, who also won 19 caps for Republic of Ireland, spent eight years at Dean Court having risen to prominence in non-league circles at Woking.
He went on to play for Fulham in the Championship before joining the Reds.
Head coach Ian Burchnall said: “We’re delighted that the opportunity to sign someone of Harry’s pedigree has presented itself to us.
“This move was instigated by Harry himself, which demonstrates his character and determination to play competitive football, and we’d like to thank Forest for their cooperation in making the deal happen.
“We’ll obviously have to build Harry’s minutes gradually initially but with so many games coming up in quick succession we’re confident he’ll be up to speed quickly and will be a big help to us.”
An interview with Harry will follow later today.
