IRELAND INTERNATIONAL HARRY Arter has signed a new four-year contract at Bounemouth.

Released by Charlton as a youngster, Arter joined his current club from Woking for £4,000 in 2010 and has been a key part of their meteoric rise from League One to the Premier League.

The 27-year-old midfielder played 35 times last season for a Cherries side that finished ninth in the top flight last season.

Once I heard the club wanted to give me a new deal, it was a pretty easy decision,” he said, in reaction to today’s news.

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

“Harry has been such an important player for us over a long period of time,” added manager Eddie Howe.

Arter has made 239 appearances for Bournemouth in total, in addition to winning six Ireland caps, the most recent of which was the 1-1 draw in a World Cup qualifier at home to Austria last month.
