Fulham striker Lauri Dalla Valle joins Bournemouth

Bournemouth have signed Fulham youngster Lauri Dalla Valle on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old striker started his career in his native Finland with JIPPO before joining Liverpool in 2008.

He signed for Fulham in August 2010 as part of the deal that took Paul Konchesky to Anfield.

Meanwhile, the Cherries have let midfielder Harry Arter, 21, join League One rivals Carlisle United on an initial month-long loan.

Arter joined Bournemouth in June from non-league side Woking and has since made 15 appearances.

Speaking about Dalla Valle's arrival, Cherries boss Lee Bradbury told the club website: "He's come here and given extra strength to the squad which will invigorate everyone.

"He's a quicker player who can play off our front men. He has a really good work rate and he can stretch the line.

"He is a very hungry to play and he will want to prove a point to Fulham that he is capable of being in their squad."

Dalla Valle only made one appearance in his time at Liverpool - as a substitute in their Europa League third round qualifying tie against Rabotnicki Skopje.

He has yet to make his Premier League debut for Fulham.
