AFC Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas has agreed a new contract with the Cherries.

AFC Bournemouth completed the signing of Junior Stanislas from Burnley on a free transfer in June 2014.

It was the second time Eddie Howe had signed Stanislas, initially signing him whilst at Burnley in August 2011 from West Ham.

During his time at Burnley he made over 100 appearances including 32 appearances during their promotion to the Premier League in 2013/14.

Declaring his desire to link back up with Eddie Howe he signed a three year contract at Dean Court.

He initially struggled to hold down a regular first team place in the side and only made 13 Championship appearances during his first season when AFC Bournemouth won promotion to the Premier League.

But following the clubs promotion to the top flight, Stanislas flourished, making 22 Premier League appearances last season, scoring memorable goals against Everton and Manchester United.

Stanislas has signed a new three year deal, keeping the now 26 year old on the south coast until the end of the 2018/19 season.

AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake told afcb.co.uk

‘It’s great to be able to secure Junior’s future with us, He is another player that made a big impact for us last season, so it’s only right to reward him for his efforts.

‘Supporters know what he can bring to the side and we are looking forward to seeing him back out on the pitch at Vitality Stadium very soon.’

Slightly surprised given the strength of options we have there, I’m not sure how much Stan is going to play beyond cup games.Join the conversation here.
