Veteran goalkeeper Artur Boruc has signed a new one-year contract with Bournemouth.

The 39-year-old former Poland international made 12 Premier League appearances for Eddie Howe’s side last season, keeping four clean sheets.

Ex-Celtic and Fiorentina keeper Boruc joined the Cherries, initially on loan, from south-coast rivals Southampton in 2014.

He has made 129 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Bournemouth also announced that out-of-contract winger Marc Pugh will leave the Vitality Stadium.

Winger Pugh, who finished last season on loan at Sky Bet Championship side Hull, scored 56 times in 312 appearances during a nine-year stint in Dorset.
