Rotherham United manager Steve Evans has wished Lewis Grabban luck following his decision to a move to AFC Bournemouth.
The 24 year old, who can play on either the wing or up front, has agreed personal terms with the Cherries and is set to sign a three year deal on Friday subject to passing a medical.
Rotherham agreed an undisclosed fee with both AFC Bournemouth and Crawley Town on Thursday, the Sheffield Star have reported that the fee is likely to be in the region of £300,000 and £400,000.
Grabban was Rotherham's top scorer in League Two last season with 21 goals from 47 appearances and previously turned down a move to Crawley Town.
Evans told themillers.co.uk...
'...Lewis has conducted himself in an impeccable manner whilst I have been at this football club. I believe that he is a player that in my opinion deserves to play at a higher level and I would personally like to wish him luck with his move to AFC Bournemouth.
'Bournemouth conducted their business in a exemplary manner, they are a club that I have a lot of respect for and I am sure that Lewis and Bournemouth will be a partnership that will flourish.
'In the games that I have been the manager of Lewis he has sparkled, and he leaves Rotherham United with mine and the clubs best wishes...'
