AFC Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter has signed a new three year deal at Dean Court.
Arter made the move to south coast six years ago, signing for the Cherries from then Conference South side Woking for £4,000.
He played an instrumental part in two promotion campaigns, the first in 2013 when the Cherries won promotion from the third tier and two years later he was voted player of the season as the Cherries were promoted to the top flight of English football for the first time in the clubs history.
Injury limited Arter to just 22 appearances during the 2015/16 season and he scored just one Premier League goal during the campaign.
Arter has also become a fully fledged international, becoming part of the Republic Of Ireland squad, but unfortunately missed out on participating in Euro 2016 due to injury.
Arter’s current deal was set to expire at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, but his new deal extends that by a further season.
Arter told afcb.co.uk…
‘It was an easy decision to sign because it has been a great few years for the club and for myself, But the most important things for me were that I have been enjoying football with a group of lads I get on really well with, and I am working with a manager I have been working with for the majority of my career and he gets the best out of me.
‘The club is going in the right direction and is in the Premier League, where every club wants to play.
‘I have been at the club for so long, it`s been a great journey for me and its still going on. We still have a long way to go and I feel we can push on and achieve even more.
‘These have been the best years of my career so far and that made it easy to stay.’
Now that is a piece of truly outstanding news. Excellent! – Join the conversation here.
