HITC Sport brought you the news last week that Tomlin was a man in demand.
Norwich City were also in contention to secure his signature at that stage, but they have now been pipped to a deal by their fellow Premier League new boys.
Bournemouth are certainly looking to ensure that they have enough creativity within their ranks to handle the step up into the top-flight.
They have already announced today, on their official website, that former Leeds United winger and Cherries loan star Max Gradel has joined on a four-year contract.
Eddie Howe has now also put a transfer in place for Tomlin and will be hoping that an influx of fresh faces help the club to hold their own among a first season among English football’s elite.
Tomlin will arrive after 18 months at Championship promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough, with the club having snapped him up from Peterborough United in January 2014.
