Mon, 06 Aug 2012 12:07:00 – The midfielder, 33, has rejoined the Cherries after leaving for Portsmouth more than 10 years ago.
Groves believes he will bring a wealth of experience to his side's engine room when he completes a medical this week and signs a two-year deal.
He told the Bournemouth Daily Echo: "As a person he is very intelligent and a solid character.
"He brings an intelligence to the pitch in terms of his positional play, breaking up play and sensing danger. He will give us balance on the left-hand side and more of a physical presence in both boxes."
