Cook signs new Cherries deal

Cook signs new Cherries deal

AFC Bournemouth defender Steve Cook has signed an improved contract.

The Cherries centre half still had two years remaining on his current contract, but manager Eddie Howe moved to offer Cook and improved three year deal after the 22 year old played a major part in AFC Bournemouth winning automatic promotion from League One last season.

Cook made 38 appearances during the promotion campaign, scoring his first goal for the club against Carlisle at Dean Court, the match which the Cherries all but secured promotion to the Championship in.

The former Brighton trainee initially joined the Cherries on loan in October 2011, when he was signed by former AFC Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury, he impressed during a two month spell making eight appearances before making the move permanent in January 2012.

Cook believes making the move from Brighton was the best decision he's made during his fledgling career.

Cook told afcb.co.uk...

"The club is going places, I wanted to be part of that and I was more than happy to sign a new contract, I love the place, the lads here are brilliant and the gaffer has been a huge influence on me. As soon as a new deal was mentioned, I wanted to get it sorted.

"It will take me up to when I`m 25, so I`m sure a lot will happen in those three years because the club has come a long way even in the time I`ve been here...'

"...I could never have imagined playing here in the Championship when I first came to the club, but it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me."
