AFC Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser has signed a new contract extension at Dean Court.

His new deal runs until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

The Cherries signed Ryan Fraser as an 18 year old from Scottish Premier League club Aberdeen in a surprise move in January 2013.

Fraser had previously turned down a new contract offer at Pittodrie and was set to be out of contract at the end of that season.

Fraser had been linked with Premier League side Swansea and Championship side Huddersfield Town before the Cherries and Aberdeen agreed an undisclosed fee (believed to be in the region of £300,000) for the Scotland Under 19’s international.

He made five appearances during his first season in League One as the Cherries won promotion and during two seasons in the second tier, Fraser made 68 appearances in all competitions scoring 6 times, with AFC Bournemouth winning the Football League Championship in that second season.

He joined Ipswich Town on a full season long loan deal as part of the transfer that saw Tyrone Mings make the move to Dean Court on 26th June 2015.

But has made a solid impact since his return in the Premier League, thus far scoring three times in 13 appearances including goals against both Liverpool and Arsenal.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told

‘…It`s exciting to think what he could be capable of, if he continues the speed of his development this season.

‘I always say in these situations the player has to move their career onto another level again – signing a new contract is not the end; it`s very much the beginning of something. Hopefully that will be the case for Ryan.

‘I`m delighted that he has signed a new contract because he is a great character, he has an infectious personality and he is a really important part of the squad.’
