Bournemouth have announced signing 21-year-old Lewis Cook to a new four-year deal after an impressive season in midfield.

“This new contract is a really proud moment for me and the icing on the cake for the year we’ve had and all the hard work that’s gone on behind the scenes at the club,” he said.
“It came as a nice surprise. I was just concentrating on my football and playing games, but when it was spoken about I couldn’t wait to get it signed. I’m really enjoying my football here and I’m looking forward to the future with AFC Bournemouth.”
“It was important that we get our talented, young players to commit to the future of the club and this is a really important signing for us to make," manager Eddie Howe chimed in.
