Bournemouth are considering making a move for Robbie Brady, with the Irishman still without a club after leaving Burnley in the summer.

The 29-year-old spent the past four-and-a-half years at Turf Moore, making over 80 appearances for the club, 19 of which came in the Premier League as the Clarets finished 17th.
Nevertheless, with his deal expiring, Brady was released in the summer and whilst he had to overcome an injury initially, he remains a free agent, even though he has been linked with a host of clubs.
And, according to Telegraph reporter Mike McGrath, the Cherries are now monitoring the former Hull City man, as Scott Parker looks to strengthen his squad.
“Republic of Ireland winger Robbie Brady emerging as a possible signing for Bournemouth as a free agent following his departure from Burnley in the summer.”
If the move does go through, the left-footer will be linking up with a side that are flying right now, with the south coast side currently top of the Championship and unbeaten in 11 games so far.

In truth, it’s a surprise that Brady remains without a club, because he’s still only 29 and he has experience and quality that would help any Championship side.
Furthermore, his versatility is a real positive and if Parker can finalise a deal for the player then it would be another impressive bit of business for the Cherries.
The terribly sad news about David Brooks may have forced Bournemouth’s hand on this one, and everyone will be wishing him well in his recovery.
