Harry Arter pledges future to Bournemouth: I had tough summer decision
Harry Arter has pledged his commitment to Bournemouth.
The midfielder, however, admits he did consider leaving Dean Court last year.
“I had a big decision to make this summer to commit to a new contract. A lot has gone on in my personal life," he told Independent.ie.
“The lows and highs have been massive and you sometimes feel it is time for a new challenge, but this feels like a new club now. We are not standing still, the club is on the up, the manager is great for me.
“There was a little bit of interest from other clubs, but my agent was speaking to Bournemouth straight after the final game of last season and we came to an agreement quite quickly over a new four year deal.
“I hope that in the next few years here, Bournemouth can be a big club at the end of it. We are looking at a new stadium, a new training ground is on the way and at the age of 27, playing every week is what I wanted to do. If I was at a top club and not playing, I'd get no satisfaction out of that."
