Bournemouth have rejected an offer of £8m from West Ham to acquire the services of central midfielder Harry Arter.
The Daily Express report that
The Republic of Ireland midfielder only signed a new four-year contract for the Cherries in the summer, although he has found it hard for game time recently since the emergence of Lewis Cook at the heart of Eddie Howe's midfield in recent weeks.
It is believed that Moyes will return with an improved bid for Arter once the transfer window officially opens in the new year although it is unclear how much more West Ham are willing to pay.
Arter has featured 11 times in the Premier League for the South Coast side this season, although a continued lack of minutes could see him leave the Vitality Stadium for pastures new in January.
