Bournemouth defender Steve Cook has signed a new three-year deal to remain at the club until the end of the 2018-19 season.
Cook, who initially joined the club on loan from Brighton in 2011, made 35 appearances for the Cherries this season and did not hesitate when offered a new contract.
"I am really pleased to have it sorted before the summer," Cook told the club's official website.
"It means now that I can go away with no worries and look forward to relaxing and getting ready for pre-season and then next year.
"It wasn't a tough decision for me to stay. My family love it here, I love it here and the club is obviously still growing, so hopefully I can continue to be a part of that."
Chief executive Neill Blake added: "We are delighted to secure Steve's future with us for a further three years.
"He has been a fundamental part of the team's success this season, and we look forward to sharing many more successful years together.
"It was great to be able to get this deal sorted so quickly and secure the future of such a key asset ahead of our second season in the Premier League."
