Eddie Howe looks set to bring in experienced keeper - Lee Camp

Despite Neil Moss giving Ryan Allsop a vote of confidence this week after the young keeper's misjudgement at Leciester City, last weekend that arguably led to the winning goal, Eddie Howe is reported by the Echo's Neil Meldrum to be closing on deal to bring West Brom's Lee Camp to Dean Court on a month's loan.

The move is not a great surprise considering that Howe made a similar move for West Ham's Stephen Henderson last month but it underlines that Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall feel that an experienced keeper is required at this level and that perhaps it is not a position where they can have any uncertainty.

Lee Camp (29) has played in the Championship at Derby County and Nottingham Forest and has qualified as a Northern Ireland international. His experience is something that has attracted him to the Cherries as injuries to Stephen Henderson and Darryl Flahavan have ruled them out of contention, while Ryan Allsop and Shwan Jalal are inexperienced at the Championship. The short loan period of just a month may mean that Darryl Flahavan could be favourite to come back in goal when the loan period is up.

It is likely that Bolton Wanderers will also have a new keeper in goal for the game on Saturday as their No 1 Adam Bogdan has a knee injury which has meant Arran Lee-Barrett has come in as cover for at least six weeks.
