Marvin Bartley has rejoined former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe at Burnley.

The 24-year-old midfielder has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the npower Championship club after leaving the Cherries for an undisclosed fee.

Bartley joined Bournemouth from non-league Hampton & Richmond in the summer of 2007 and rapidly established himself as a mainstay of the side under Howe.

Reading-born Bartley started his career with his home-town club Burnham before moving to Dean Court.

He made over 130 appearances for the Cherries and played a key role in their promotion to League One last season under Howe.

Bartley will not feature in the Clarets' Championship clash at Doncaster on Tuesday night.
