Liverpool have accepted a bid from Bournemouth for Australia international Brad Smith, according to Sky sources.

The 22-year-old left-back was on Liverpool's tour of the United States, but will now return to England to hold talks with Bournemouth over a move to the Vitality Stadium. 

If terms can be agreed, Smith will become the second player to leave Liverpool for Bournemouth this summer following Jordon Ibe's club record £15m switch to the south coast

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been busy adding to his squad ahead of the new season and has already secured the services of Ibe, Nathan Ake, Emerson Hyndman, Lys Mousset and Lewis Cook. 

Smith, capped nine times by Australia, made his Liverpool debut in December 2013, coming on as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 defeat away at Chelsea.
