Glenn Murray is expected to make his Bournemouth debut against Norwich after joining the club for £4million from Crystal Palace.

The striker goes straight into manager Eddie Howe’s squad, alongside fellow new signing Joe Bennett, but, while midfielder Harry Arter is closer to a first-team return, he is not yet match fit.

Howe remains without two other summer signings - Tyrone Mings and Max Gradel - both being long-term absentees, while the on-loan Christian Atsu is also expected to miss out again.

Provisional squad: Boruc, Federici, Allsop, Francis, Cook, Gosling, Elphick, Surman, Pugh, Rantie, Smith, Distin, Bennett, MacDonald, Stanislas, O’Kane, Ritchie, Wilson, King, Kermorgant, Tomlin, Murray.

Norwich will be without suspended full-back Steven Whittaker for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League game against Bournemouth at Carrow Road.

Congo forward Dieumerci Mbokani, signed on loan from Dynamo Kiev, could make his debut in English football, while winger Matt Jarvis - a deadline day loan signing from West Ham - should also feature.

Sweden left-back Martin Olsson is fit after a shoulder injury having played during the international break, as did Northern Ireland forward Kyle Lafferty (knee) - but striker Lewis Grabban is short on training and midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu (foot) is out.

Provisional squad: Ruddy, Wisdom, Martin, Bassong, Brady, Tettey, Dorrans, Howson, Hoolahan, Redmond, Jerome, Rudd, Hooper, R Bennett, O’Neil, Jarvis, Mbokani, Lafferty.

Kemar Roofe celebrates his second goal with his team-mates.
