Bournemouth hang onto Reading's Karacan

Reading midfielder Jem Karacan will remain on loan with Bournemouth until January 6.

The Turkish youngster has impressed in his first month at Dean Court, scoring twice in seven matches for the relegation-threatened Cherries.

Manager Kevin Bond told the club's official website when initially signing the 18-year-old: "I've seen him play three or four times. He's a little workaholic in the middle of the park.

"He enjoys grafting and closing people down and he's a useful type of player. He's the sort of player we need right now and gives us one or two more options."
