So far, the Club have secured a work permit, as well as international clearance, The remaining piece to be slotted in to place is a visa to enter the country, which is being processed by the UK Embassy in South Africa.
Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Eddie Howe is quoted as saying: "We are hoping to get everything finalised before Saturday but we are in the hands of the authorities. We are hopeful he will be here because we think he would give everyone a boost. It doesn’t make my plans difficult and it would be great to have him involved for Saturday. We will give him all the time he needs to try to get everything sorted and to get himself here. These things take time and there are processes you have to go through. I don’t anticipate any problems. We are just in a race against the clock".
