Arter wants Cardiff move
Harry Arter hopes to complete a permanent move from Bournemouth to Cardiff, but much depends on the Bluebirds staying up.
The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international midfielder is currently on a season-long loan after struggling to play regular football with the Cherries, and has impressed in his 10 appearances so far this term.
Arter is enjoying playing regular football in south Wales and, when quizzed about his long-term future, he revealed that a full-time switch could be on the cards next summer.
Eddie Howe is unlikely to stand in his way, but there is much to sort out before a deal can happen. First up, Cardiff need to win the fight for survival, and then the two clubs would have to agree on a fee.
"Playing Premier League football is all I want to do," Arter said. "That's something I feel I've worked very hard for in my career and not something I want to give up very easily.
"I'm 29 next month and I know if I step out of the Premier League it might be hard to get back there.
"I've said to my family already that the dream season would be Cardiff to stay up and the manager to want to carry on next year and then hopefully I can sign.
"I've loved every minute of being here. Every training session I've loved and most importantly the games. Playing at home has had a real meaning to it this year - the fans have been brilliant throughout."
