Brad Smith set for Bournemouth move after Liverpool accept £6M bid

Liverpool's 22 year old Australian left back, Brad Smith, is set to leave the reds for Premier League side Bournemouth.

The reds have accepted a £6M bid for the youngster in the last 24 hours.

The player is currently training in the United States with the rest of the squad but will now return to England shortly to hold talks with the Cherries.

If personal terms are agreed he will team back up with former red Jordon Ibe who joined the club for £15M earlier this summer.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is still looking for a left back to compete with Alberto Moreno, but obviously didn't believe that Brad was necessarily the man to do this.  Smith is two years younger than Moreno.

Smith moved to England at the age of 14 joining Liverpool's Academy.

He had a brief spell at Swindon on loan but last season played a number of times for the reds as they juggled a hectic schedule towards the end of the season.  He has made 11 senior appearances for the reds.
