Bournemouth are set to complete the signing of Ryan Fredericks on Wednesday after the defender’s exit from West Ham, Football Insider understands.
This site revealed on 15 June that the Premier League new boys were in advanced talks to sign the 29-year-old.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Fredericks has agreed to join Bournemouth and completed a medical on Tuesday.
He has agreed the terms of a two-year contract with the Cherries.
Fredericks was due to be a free agent when his contract at the London Stadium expires at the end of this month.
The right-back has been the subject of strong interest from multiple clubs this summer, including his former employers Fulham.

A move to south coast will see Fredericks reunited with his former Cottagers teammate Scott Parker, who was appointed Bournemouth manager in June 2021.
Fredericks struggled with injury during his time at West Ham.
He found his game time limited last season.
Irons manager David Moyes preferred Ben Johnson, Vladimir Coufal and Aaron Cresswell in the full-back positions.
In total, the English defender played 77 times across all competitions for the Hammers.
Scott Parker is keen to bolster his squad ahead of the new Premier League season.
Fredericks will become the newly-promoted side’s first addition of the summer window.
The Cherries began the 2022-23 season at home to Aston Villa on 6 August.
