Cherries bolstered by Edgar loan

League Two leaders Bournemouth have bolstered their injury-plagued squad with the signing of West Ham midfielder Anthony Edgar on a month's loan.

The 19-year-old arrives after the Football League allowed the injury-hit Cherries, who are under a transfer embargo, to sign one player on loan.

"Anthony can play anywhere across the midfield," assistant manager Jason Tindall told BBC Radio Solent.

"That is crucial for a side like ours with such a small squad."

Injury problems have meant that Bournemouth have only been able to name three substitutes - including Tindall - for their last two League games, rather than the usual seven.

The club has been under a League embargo since February because of their financial problems.
