Republic of Ireland international Harry Arter has signed a new three-year contract to remain with Bournemouth until at least 2019.
Arter joined the Cherries from non-league Woking in 2010 and has played a key role in the club's progression from League One to the Premier League. Indeed, he was named the supporters' player-of-the-year as the Cherries won the Championship in 2014-15.
In his five years at the club, Arter has made over 200 appearances for the Cherries and the new deal will see remain at the Vitality Stadium until the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
"We're delighted to secure Harry's long term future at the club,” said AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake.
"Harry has been on every step of the journey and he has been an important figure in our rise through the leagues.
"He has made over 200 appearances for the club and has also become an international footballer, so we're really pleased to give Harry this new deal."
Arter had been expected to be named in the Republic of Ireland squad for Euro 2016 only to be ruled out of the tournament through injury.
