Dale Gordon, the former England B winger, has left West Ham on a free transfer to become player-coach of Second Division Bournemouth.

Burnley have signed the former England Under-21 international Damien Matthew from Crystal Palace for pounds 65,000.

Erik Thorstvedt will today join up with Wolves at their Salzburg training camp, ready to complete his move from Tottenham. The 33-year-old Norwegian international goalkeeper will finalise his free transfer to Molineux as the First Division club prepare for their tour of Austria and Germany. Wolves' new central defender Adrian Williams is set for a lengthy lay- off with a knee injury. Initially it was thought that the 24-year-old would be sidelined for six weeks after damaging his knee in Austria, but cruciate ligament damage, requiring major surgery, has been diagnosed.
