AFC Bournemouth midfielder Andrew Surman has confirmed that he has a contract with the Cherries until the summer of 2019.
When Surman completed his permanent move to AFC Bournemouth from Norwich City in September 2014 he signed personal terms on a three year contract (previous article).
It was widely thought by many supporters that AFC Bournemouth’s vice captain was out of contract this summer, due to no announcement being made on a new contract being agreed.
However Surman has revealed that he still has two years remaining on his current contract and would actually like to remain at Dean Court beyond 2019.
Surman told the Daily Echo…
‘I have two years left here, so we will have to see what happens. I would like to think I will be here for longer but I am not looking too far ahead…’
He went on to discuss the competition from places amongst the AFC Bournemouth midfield, with Andrew Surman competing for a place alongside Harry Arter, Dan Gosling and Lewis Cook.
‘…You have to really embrace the fight for places, that is the nature of football. By no means do I think my place is guaranteed. You have to work for it, you really are only as good as your last game.
‘Lewis Cook has done exceptionally well since he has come in, Dan Gosling has been fantastic for us – and there is Harry Arter as well!
‘There is going to be enormous competition for places and that can only be good for the squad.’
Interesting some thought he was out of contract, now it appears he has two years to go, so when was his contract renewed? – Join the conversation here.
