GOALKEEPER Joe Bursik is a "potential target" for Cherries this summer, according to talkSPORT.

England under-21 international Bursik currently plies his trade with Stoke City in the Championship.

The 21-year-old, who like Cherries boss Scott Parker was born in Lambeth, made 21 appearances for the Potters this season.

Despite still being young for a goalkeeper, Bursik has plenty of experience, rapidly approaching 100 career club matches.

The stopper came through the youth ranks at AFC Wimbledon before joining Stoke aged 17.

Since linking up with the Potters, Bursik has spent time out on loan at Hednesford Town and AFC Telford United in non-league, before stints at Accrington Stanley, Doncaster Rovers, Peterborough United and Lincoln City.

He has represented England at every age group from under-17s upwards.

Bursik featured against Cherries last season, where Stoke were beaten 1-0 thanks to a late Junior Stanislas goal.

The report by talkSPORT says Cherries are looking for somebody to provide "competition" for the club's player of the season Mark Travers.

Freddie Woodman has been providing back-up to Travers, but his loan spell from Newcastle United is set to expire this summer.

That leaves only youngster Will Dennis as the other senior goalkeeper in Cherries' squad.

The report also states Gary Cahill will not be offered a new deal by Cherries, with the club eyeing up Chelsea's Levi Colwill as a possible replacement.

Another player linked is Joe Rothwell, who is a free agent having departed Blackburn Rovers.
