Republic of Ireland international Harry Arter may have tragically missed out on Euro 2016 but his club future has been secured.

The 26-year-old will remain at the Vitality Stadium until 2019 after agreeing to the new three-year deal at Bournemouth.

The Cherries midfielder looked set for a place in Martin O'Neill's 23-man Euro 2016 squad but suffered a thigh injury ahead of his man-of-the-match display against the Netherlands and missed out.

"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."
