2 years ago

In the latest Bournemouth news, midfielder Junior Stanislas says he is determined to get his head down and improve after committing his future to the Cherries.

The 28-year-old has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal at the Vitality Stadium despite having not played since March due to a knee injury.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe have shown faith in the former West Ham United academy player and now the midfielder has secured his long-term future on the south coast.

Having signed the deal with the Premier League outfit, Stanislas is now looking to get back to full fitness and hopes he can repay the faith shown in him by the Cherries’ hierarchy.

“It’s a nice feeling to get rewarded for some good work over the last couple of years,” Stanislas said.

“As soon as it was there I wanted to get it signed and then get my head down and start focusing on improving over the next few years as well.

“I spoke to the gaffer and he was keen to get something done and signed. That shows the faith the manager has put in me – that is something that I really appreciate.”

Bournemouth have made a strong start to their Premier League campaign and currently sit in sixth place in the table, with seven points secured from their first four games.

The Cherries have their international stars away at present but the south coast outfit will be back in action on September 15 when they host Leicester City at the Vitality Stadium.

Bournemouth are 11/8 with bet365 to claim all three points against the Foxes, while the East Midlands side are 2/1 to secure the win on the road.
