Bournemouth have re-signed striker Lewis Grabban from Norwich for a fee of around £7m.
Grabban has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Cherries. He left Bournemouth for Carrow Road in June 2014 having spent the previous two years on the south coast.
He is the second striker to arrive at the club in two days after Bournemouth signed Benik Afobe from Wolves.
Grabban scored 35 goals in just under 100 games during his first stint at Bournemouth.
A statement from Bournemouth read: "AFC Bournemouth have completed a deal to bring striker Lewis Grabban back to the club from Norwich City for an undisclosed fee, subject to Premier League clearance.
"Grabban, who previously played for the Cherries between 2012 and 2014, returns on a contract until June 2019 after a year-and-a-half at the Canaries.
"The striker netted 35 goals during his two season stay at Vitality Stadium, averaging a goal every 2.3 games."
After starting his career with Crystal Palace, Grabban played for Millwall, Brentford and Rotherham prior to his first move to Dean Court.
Grabban netted his only goal of the current campaign in a 1-1 draw with Arsenal in November, but he has made just eight appearances for Norwich this season.
