Adam Smith pens contract extension


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Adam Smith has signed a new four-year contract at AFC Bournemouth.

The full-back’s deal at Vitality Stadium will now run through to the summer of 2021.

Having previously spent the 2010/11 season on loan at the club, Smith joined the Cherries on a permanent basis in January 2014 from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 26-year-old has since gone on to make 113 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring three goals.

“I’m delighted,” Smith told afcb.co.uk. “I’m settled in the area and get along really well with the lads.

“There is nowhere else I want to be at this moment. Everything is going well for me both on and off the pitch and I’m looking forward to that continuing.”

Manager Eddie Howe said: “When we first brought Adam to the club we believed he had huge potential. Adam has taken his opportunity, improved as a player and is an important member of our squad.

“We're delighted he will stay with us and hopefully continue his progression further.”

AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said: “Adam is another one of our players that has played a key role in the club’s recent journey and we’re delighted he’s extended his stay with us.

“He’s an infectious character and a big part of what we’re trying to do and build at this football club.”
