Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers is set to join Swindon Town, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Championship club have given the 21-year-old the green light to exit the Vitality Stadium this month in aid of his development.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that the League One club have agreed the terms of a loan move that will run until the end of the season.

Travers has made nine appearances for the Cherries in total but has struggled for game time this season behind the experienced Asmir Begovic.
He made his senior debut for the club under Eddie Howe in May 2019, keeping a clean sheet in a 1–0 win over Tottenham.
The young goalkeeper made two Premier League appearances in the 2018/19 season and one more in the subsequent campaign.
Former Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy handed Travers his international debut at the age of 20 and he has been a regular member of the squad since.
Swindon boss John Sheridan is in the market for a new goalkeeper in January with the futures of Matej Kovar and Joe Fryer unclear.
Kovar, on loan from Manchester United, has kept just one clean sheet in 18 League One appearances this season.
While Fryer has conceded 10 goals in his four appearances across all competitions.

Only bottom-of-the-table Burton have conceded more goals than the Robins this season, a problem Sheridan is keen to address in the transfer window.
The club hope that the loan signing of Bournemouth goalkeeper Travers can help plug a leaky defence and spark a turnaround in form which has yielded no wins in the last six.
