Bournemouth boss Kevin Bond admits they're still talking to Reading about extending the loan of midfielder Jem Karacan.

"As it stands Jem's loan period has expired and we're working on extending that," Bond told the club's official website.

"We're talking to Reading about the possibility of doing something before the weekend. They've sent him out to get some match practice and I would hope nothing has changed.

"There's always the possibility other clubs might be interested. We had that with a few players who did well here last season, but I suppose I'd much prefer that situation than taking a loan player who doesn't do very well."
