Fraser Rejects Short Term Bournemouth Contract Extension

Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser has declined to sign a short-term contract extension until the end of the season.

Fraser, 26, is set to leave the club when his current deal ends on 30 June.

The Scotland international remains eligible for the Cherries’ next two games but is unlikely to feature in either before his contract expires.

Club captain Simon Francis, midfielder Andrew Surman, full-back Charlie Daniels and back-up keeper Artur Boruc have all agreed short-term extensions.

The quartet, whose deals were also due to expire at the end of June, are now under contract for the rest of the delayed 2019-20 season.

Meanwhile, winger Jordon Ibe, 24, who was the Cherries’ record signing when he moved from Liverpool for £15m in 2016 but has not played for the first team since September, is no longer training with the club and is set to depart when his contract ends on 30 June.

The former Aberdeen Star who joined Bournemouth  in 2013, has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Tottenham, among others, when the transfer window opens.

The Cherries had offered him a new “long-term” contract more than a year ago  despite speculations about a £30m move. Had a deal been struck, Aberdeen would have been entitled to 20% of the fee.

The Premier League season will restart on Wednesday after a 100-day suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.
