Premier League newcomers Bournemouth have signed their second goalkeeper in two days by acquiring ex-Reading stopper Adam Federici.
The Cherries brought in last season's loanee Artur Boruc on a permanent deal on Tuesday and have followed that up by agreeing to terms on a three-year deal with Federici, who was a free agent after his contract with the Royals expired.
