Woking FC are hoping to receive a payment from Bournemouth following Harry Arter’s move to Nottingham Forest, according to the club’s official website.

The 30-year-old checked in to the City Ground this week, signing a three-year contract with the Reds.

Arter dropped into non-league to sign for Woking in 2007 after leaving Charlton Athletic where he rose through the youth ranks.

He scored four goals in 36 games for the Cardinals before getting a chance to return to the Football League with Bournemouth.

A report by the Bournemouth Echo claims that Arter was signed for just £4000 by the Cherries and clearly, Woking believe they included a future sell on clause in the deal.

The central midfielder proved to be a legend at the Vitality Stadium helping the club from League One to the Premier League, becoming a mainstay in the team.


Forest have pulled off something off a coup by landing Arter but the fee hasn’t been revealed in the public eye.

Bournemouth will have to determine how much Woking are owed it would seem and the club have now contacted Forest’s Championship rivals.

Last season Arter thrived under Scott Parker in the Fulham team, helping the Cottagers win promotion to the Premier League through the play-offs.

Forest will hope for more of the same, whilst Woking will hope to get what they are owed for the player.

For £4000, Arter proved a steal for the Cherries, playing 255 times for the club in League One, the Championship and the Premier League.

Forest fans might follow this one closely to see if it does emerge what the club has actually played for the dynamic midfielder.
