Stephen Henderson: Joined Bournemouth until January 2

Henderson, who spent time with Ipswich last season, will remain with the Cherries until January 2 and could be thrown straight into the action against Millwall this weekend.

Number one Ryan Allsop is suspended while Darryl Flahavan picked up a thigh strain on Tuesday evening having replaced Allsop after he saw red.

"We felt we needed to bring in an experienced goalkeeper who has played the level," manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo.

"He's a good shot-stopper, he's experienced, a good kicker and good coming for crosses so he ticks all the boxes and we are delighted to have brought him in."
