Ian Harte has signed a one-year deal with Championship club Bournemouth.

The former Leeds United and Sunderland defender signed on at the Goldsands Stadium after training with Eddie Howe's squad for the first time on Thursday.

Harte has made more than 200 appearances in the Premier League and featured 18 times for Reading last season against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham.

The 35-year-old is renowned as a set piece specialist and has represented the Republic of Ireland 63 times during his career.

Harte becomes the club's second summer signing following the arrival of defender Elliott Ward last week.
