Marc Pugh commits future to Bournemouth

Bournemouth have announced winger Marc Pugh has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club for another two-and-a-half years.

The 28-year-old - the longest serving player of the current Cherries squad - has tied his future to Dean Court until 2018.

He told the club's official website: "'I've always wanted my future to be at AFC Bournemouth. I love the place. It ticks all the boxes for me on and off the pitch.

"The club has come on so much. The owners, the board, the staff and the fans have all done an incredible job.

"The rise has been incredible. We've got a great squad and great characteristics in the dressing room - that will take us a long way."

Pugh has scored one goal in nine Barclays Premier League appearances this season but has missed the club's last two games through injury.
