BOURNEMOUTH have agreed a £4million fee for Jack Stacey.

The Cherries had three bids rejected for the Luton full-back but have finally struck a deal.

Stacey, 23, will undergo a medical on Monday morning having already agreed personal terms.

He was named the club’s young player of the season last term as he helped Luton win promotion.

Eddie Howe has seen off competition from Celtic to land the versatile defender.

And Stacey understood to have snubbed a switch to Stoke to join the Cherries.

His exit means Championship new-boys Luton have sold both full-backs to the Premier League this summer, following James Justin’s move to Leicester.

The sale of the two players will see the Hatters receive £10m in little more than a week after the King Power club paid an initial £6m for Justin.

Justin, 21, will battle with the Foxes’ player of the year Ricardo Pereira for a place at right-back for Brendan Rodgers this season.

He is also able to play on the left side of defence and the club have high hopes for the England Under-20 international.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have already signed Bristol City’s Lloyd Kelly.

The Cherries spent £15m on the England Under-21 player, who came through the academy at Ashton Gate.
