BOURNEMOUTH have reportedly agreed a deal with Manchester United to take Ethan Laird on loan for the remainder of the season.
The defender, 20, already has experience of the Championship on his CV.
He has spent the first half of the current campaign on loan at Swansea.
Laird made 21 appearances for the Welsh side.
Now Sky Sports claim promotion-chasing Bournemouth have secured his services.
The starlet is expected to complete his medical on the South Coast within the next 48 hours.
The youngster is reportedly viewed as a future first-team player by the United hierarchy.
And he will be assessed as an option for Ralf Rangnick's side once he returns to Old Trafford.

Rangnick has Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot competing for the right-back slot with Kieran Trippier also linked to the club.
At the other end of the pitch, it is believed Rangnick will block Edinson Cavani leaving the club this month.
