O’Kane has been at the Premier League club since joining from Torquay United in 2012, but he he has struggled for first-team opportunities in the past two seasons as the Cherries were promoted and retained their status in the top flight.

The midfielder has two caps for the Republic of Ireland after switching his allegiances from Northern Ireland, whom he played for at youth level.

He made his debut in March in matches against Switzerland and Slovakia, and the player will be keen to get into the final reckoning for the European Championship in France after being named in the 35 man provisional squad by manager Martin O’Neill.
