Could AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter be on the brink of joining Premier League rivals Watford?
During the summer transfer window, Arter was linked with numerous moves away from Dean Court.
On transfer deadline day he opted for a season-long loan move to Cardiff City, who had just been promoted from the Championship.
Since his move to Cardiff, despite their current predicament fighting relegation at the foot of the Premier League table, Arter has appeared happy.
His newly adopted fans like him and Arter likes the club, so much so that he has already declared that if Cardiff could avoid relegation then he would want to extend his stay.
However, according to the Irish Telegraph, AFC Bournemouth could still choose to sell Arter during the January transfer window and cut short his loan.
The Irish Telegraph claim that AFC Bournemouth could recall him from his loan, this contradicts reports that there was no recall option in the season-long loan deal that took him to Cardiff.
But that doesn’t appear to prevent the Cherries from being able to sell him and the report goes on to add that there has been interest from Watford and Championship side Aston Villa to sign the Irish international on a permanent basis.
According to the article, the 29-year-old, who missed this weekends defeat to Newcastle United will “make a decision on his future in the next few days, with a move away from Cardiff looking likely.”

Arter’s contract at Dean Court runs until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
It’s clear his time here is over but I wish him nothing but good things for the rest of his career and life and he will rightly be remembered as a genuine AFCB legend. – Join the conversation, click here.
