Wednesday July 19th, 2017

​Bournemouth have announced via their ​website that Harry Arter has extended his seven-year association with the Cherries by putting pen to paper on a new four-year deal which runs until the summer of 2021.

The 27-year-old who joined the Cherries in 2010 whilst the club was in League One has been with the club through their rise to England's top flight where he has since been a mainstay in the centre of midfield.    

The midfielder who joined the club from non-league Woking has since made 239 appearances for AFC Bournemouth, scoring 28 goals in the process. 

Upon signing his new deal Arter said: “Once I heard the club wanted to give me a new deal, it was a pretty easy decision.


“The team has been successful over the last few years and you want to be part of somewhere that is continually progressing.

“I just want to improve all the time and it’s nice to be part of a squad who are all trying to do that, too.


His manager Eddie Howe was also delighted with the midfielder's re-commitment, he said: “Harry has been such an important player for us over a long period of time.

“He is a real winner and has been at the heart of most of the good things that have happened on the pitch.


“He has been outstanding in terms of his conduct and attitude to the group and it’s great news that he has committed his future to the club.”

Arta is currently in Spain with his teammates for their pre-season training camp as they prepare for their third successive season in the Premier League.
