Robbie Brady's stint as a free agent is over after he signed for Championship table toppers Bournemouth until the end of the season.

The Republic of Ireland international departed Burnley during the summer, spending a couple of months without a club until being snapped up by the south of England outfit.

Brady's stay is initially until the end of the season though Bournemouth have the option of extending that next summer.

Scott Parker's team currently sit top of the EFL Championship, winning eight and drawing four of their first 12 matches.

The 29-year-old Dubliner - a star man in Euro 2016 - continued to train with Stephen Kenny's Republic of Ireland side during his free agent period, last playing for the international side in the 1-1 draw with Qatar in March.

Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said of the transfer: "To be able to sign a player of Robbie's experience and calibre on a free transfer is a coup for the football club.

"Robbie has huge quality and versatility to add another important option to Scott Parker and his coaching staff.

"Proven at the top level, Robbie knows what it takes to be a Premier League player and we’re delighted he has chosen to join us at Vitality Stadium."
