Bournemouth have completed the signing of Arsenal midfielder John Spicer for £10,000, reports BBC Radio Solent.
Spicer has fitted in well during his three months at Dean Court
The 21-year-old has been on loan from the Gunners for three months, scoring four goals in 19 league and cup games.
Romford-born Spicer has now penned an 18-month contract, keeping him at Dean Court until the summer of 2006.
He came through the youth ranks at Arsenal, but only made one appearance for their first team - as a late substitute in a Carling Cup tie.
The move was made possible by the Cherries' fan-run Playershare scheme, which has helped fund loan signings and other player contracts..
Playershare spokesman Nick Douch said: "John is obviously an outstanding talent, and we are happy to help Sean to get his signature."
Manager Sean O'Driscoll added: "John is the sort of player you travel up and down the motorway looking for, and fits in perfectly with the way we try and play the game.
"We are very happy he has agreed to come and join us, and we are again indebted to Playershare for helping make the deal possible."
Spicer is now available for Saturday's home game with Swindon.
