The 26-year-old, who is comfortable in the middle or on the left of a back four, could make his debut when the Cherries face Preston on Saturday, subject to Football League clearance.

Painter has made just three appearances for the Seagulls this year and manager Gus Poyet believes that is a result of Wayne Bridge's form.

Poyet told the club's official website: "Marcos is always a great professional to have around the club but he has not had a lot of chances to play this season because of the form and quality of Wayne Bridge.

"It's important for Marcos to be playing regular football so it was a good decision for him to move to Bournemouth on loan, where he can help them push for promotion out of League One.

"We hope that he has a successful remainder of the season."

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Benjamin Buchel has signed a contract extension at Dean Court until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old signed a six-month deal under then-boss Paul Groves and will now join non-league outfit Dorchester on loan for one month.

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
