AFC Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas has had an operation following the climax to the 2016/17 Premier League season.
The Daily Echo have reported that…
‘Stanislas is expected to be fit for the start of pre-season after going under the knife to cure a persistent hernia problem.’
The report added that the 27 year old missed the AFC Bournemouth Players Awards evening due to travelling to Germany for procedure.
Stanislas had a bit of a stop-start campaign, featuring in 21 Premier League games this season (18 starts), scoring 7 goals and making 5 assists.
Only Adam Smith and Ryan Fraser could match Stanislas’ assists statistics this season, however both players featured more during the season.
Smith played over double the amount of minutes as Stanislas (3099 in comparison to 1476) and Fraser playing 293 minutes more.

Such an intelligent player and perhaps the only one in our squad capable of taking a decent set piece. Hopefully we can get him fully fit for next season as I feel he is an under appreciated part of our attack. – Join the conversation here.
