New deal: Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc signs one-year contract extension

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Artur Boruc has signed a new one-year contract to remain at Bournemouth until 2019.

The 38-year-old goalkeeper arrived at the club from Southampton in 2014 and has since made 112 appearances, although last season he lost his first-team place to Asmir Begovic .

“I’m very pleased and happy to stay here for another year,” the former Poland international said.

“It is never easy to watch the team playing when you are not involved but I am fighting every day for the number one spot and whenever the manager gives me a chance, I give it 100 per cent.

“I am also trying to help our young goalkeepers who are at the start of their careers, which is very important to me.

“I am settled here, I love this club and my family love it here too. I believe I still have a part to play and that is why I signed a new deal.”

Bournemouth’s 40-year-old manager Eddie Howe, who initially loaned Boruc from Southampton before signing him on a permanent basis, added: “Artur fully deserves his new contract.

“This is the best I have seen him train since he has been with us, which is a huge compliment considering he hasn’t been playing regularly.

“He has great ability, still has the hunger to play and would be ready for action whenever called upon.”
