Flahavan: I am staying to fight for the shirt

AFC Bournemouth 'keeper Darryl Flahavan is close to agreeing terms on a new 12 month contract with the Cherries.

AFC Bournemouth announced that they had offered new contracts to goalkeeping duo Darryl Flahavan and Benjamin B├╝chel at the beginning of May.

34 year old Flahavan, was signed by former manager Lee Bradbury and has made 48 appearances for the club, but missed the whole of last season after suffering a shoulder injury during a pre-season friendly, he returned in time to make two appearances in the Hampshire Senior Cup.

If he does opt to stay at Dean Court he will be set to battle with Ryan Allsop and Shwan Jalal for the Cherries number one shirt.

Flahavan told the Daily Echo...

'There are just a few things that need ironing out but everything seems to be fine and, hopefully, we can get the contract sorted and signed. I don`t see any real problems and everything should be resolved in the next week or so.

"I have had a few (clubs) sniffing around but nothing concrete. At the minute, I am focused on what I am being offered at Bournemouth. If nothing materialises then I would have to look around but I want to stay and nothing else has entered my mind...'

'...I don`t expect to walk straight into the team but I am staying to fight for the shirt. I think Ryan deserves his chance but I`m coming back in pre-season to work hard and my ambition is to play. Ryan is, quite rightly, in possession of the shirt so it is down to me to put pressure on him."
