PRESTON North End have signed Northern Ireland international Steve Robinson from Bournemouth.

David Moyes made a £375,000 swoop for the highly-rated 25-year-old with the offer of a four year contract.

The attacking midfielder has been capped five times by Northern Ireland and is comfortable on either flank or in a central midfield role.

Robinson has netted 62 times in 287 appearances for the Cherries, taking the captain's armband following Ian Cox's move to Burnley.

He is a former Tottenham Hotspur player and has made two appearances in the Premiership, albeit one as sub.

David Moyes, obviously pleased to have got his man, said: "We are delighted to announce that we've signed Steve.

"We have been looking to bring in a midfield player who would bring us something different and I feel Steve's ability to score goals and his ability to play in several positions is a plus for us.

"Another big plus is that we have signed another full international and the way the club is rising, you cannot have enough players of that calibre in your squad.

"And the fee of £375,000 is a realistic price for Steve. There were quotes in the media suggesting figures around £750,000 so I think we have got a very good player for a decent price."

Robinson signed on Thursday after completing a medical.
