Bournemouth Winger Junior Stanislas Extends Cherries Stay
Two Year Deal
Bournemouth have confirmed that 31-year-old winger Stanislas has put to pen paper on a new two-year deal at the Vitality Stadium, meaning he will have been at the club for nine years when the new contract ends after joining the club from Burnley in 2014 on a free transfer.
What Was Said?
Stanislas told the official Bournemouth website that he is delighted a new deal has finally been reached after it had taken some time for terms to be agreed: “It’s dragged out a little but I’ve always wanted to be here. I’m delighted it’s finally over the line and I can now focus my mind on the next two years.”
Stanislas has proved to be an important player for Bournemouth, helping the club gain promotion to the Premier League just one season after he had helped former club Burnley achieve the same result.
In the 2021/21 Championship season, the winger scored ten times as the club made it to the play-offs before failing to reach the final. Stanislas will be looking to add more goals in the new season as the club look to return to the Premier League at the second time of asking. He said: “I want to help this team and this club get back to where we want to be and for me to play my part within that.“
Stanislas has scored 37 goals in all competitions for the club and even played with the new manager Scott Parker at West Ham United when he made his Premier League debut at Upton Park in 2009.
Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake told the clubs website that he is delighted to have Stanislas commit his immediate future to the club he has served so well: “It’s great to have Junior back on board and to keep strengthening the squad ahead of the start of the season.”
