The European champions have sought assurances from Bournemouth over regular minutes for the Wales global and feel their manager Eddie Howe is one of the best custodians of young talent with his progressive playing blueprint.

Bournemouth and Liverpool are holding talks regarding a possible loan deal for Harry Wilson.

The Reds though, will not let Wilson join their fellow Premier League club without getting assurances of regular game time for the talented attacker.

He scored 17 goals last season as Derby reached the Championship play-off final. "I want to play Premier League football and with a great team like Bournemouth".

Howe, the Bournemouth manager, views Wilson as a natural replacement for Brooks, who is facing three months on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

The 22-year-old travelled to the south coast on Tuesday afternoon to undergo a medical and complete the formalities of his temporary switch, which will include a further £500,000 in bonuses depending on performances.
