Bournemouth striker Ben Williamson is on the verge of completing a move to Port Vale, according to Cherries boss Lee Bradbury.

The 22-year-old striker made only five substitute appearances for the south-coast club last season and looks set to join Vale in order to get regular first-team football.

"Ben Williamson is in advanced talks at Port Vale," Bradbury told Bournemouth's official website.

"I have been negotiating with him for a few weeks and it's disappointing that he's not going to be signing for us.

"I can understand why he has made this decision because I can't promise him first-team football. It's a difficult one for him, a big decision, but one he feels is going to be beneficial to him.


"We have got a lot of quality strikers at the club and he will get more opportunities at Port Vale, but it's still a shame as I saw something in him.

"However, he has chosen to take up an offer elsewhere as he looks to further his career and I don't blame him for that."
