First team

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Junior Stanislas has signed a contract extension, keeping him at the club until 2021.

Stanislas has made 87 appearances for the Cherries since joining the club in the summer of 2014 from Burnley.

Re-united with Eddie Howe on the south coast, Stanislas has since gone on to score 19 goals in all competitions for the Cherries, with 15 of them coming in the Premier League.

Stanislas’ goals have played an important part in Bournemouth’s Premier League story so far.

During the club’s most recent season he scored a spectacular free kick to seal a late victory against West Bromwich Albion at Vitality Stadium and was also on the scoresheet during the club’s memorable victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"It's a nice feeling to get rewarded for some good work over the last couple of years," Stanislas told afcb.co.uk.

"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.

"I just try to do my best every time I get out on the pitch and help the team, whether that be assisting goals, scoring them or contributing to the team’s success. I plan to do that again this season, and maybe take it to another level."

AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake said: "I'm delighted that Junior has extended his stay with us.

"He has been an important part of the club for a number of years both on and off the pitch, a key performer in the Premier League and someone who is a real threat for us in the final third.

"Junior is an experienced player but we believe his best years are still ahead of him and that is why we were so keen to ensure he remained at AFC Bournemouth."
