The Irish international will bring a wealth of experience both on and off the field for Gary O’Neil and will bolster the goalkeeping department. Currently Neto has the number one shirt with Mark Travers as the only first team back up option between the sticks.
Randolph’s arrival at Vitality Stadium will offer cover should Neto or Travers get an injury and having a player like Randolph in the dressing room will be vital in the coming months as the club look to stave off relegation.
The 35-year-old has had stints at Middlesbrough, Motherwell, Birmingham City and Charlton and will join the Cherries from West ham after his second spell with the club.
He has played 34 times in the Premier League for the Hammers, predominantly during the 2016/17 campaign as West ham finished 11th.
The Cherries have already secured the services of Dango Ouattara and the club are looking set to be busy in the final week of the transfer window with deals for Nicolas Jackson and Matias Viña almost over the line as well.
