AFC Bournemouth top goalscorer Lewis Grabban has signed a new deal with the Cherries.
The striker, who has arguably been AFC Bournemouth's player of the season thus far, has impressed since the Cherries won promotion to the Championship.
After scoring 13 goals last season en route to helping the side win automatic promotion from League One, the 25 year old has already scored 7 goals in 15 league appearances and he has been rewarded with a new contract which is not set to expire until the end of the 2015/16 season.
Lewis Grabban's current deal had been set to run until 2015 after he had agreed to join the Cherries on 31st May 2012 from League Two side Rotherham United, signing a three year deal with the Cherries.
Grabban had spent just one season with Rotherham after moving from Brentford. He scored 18 goals in League Two making him the joint top goalscorer for the 2011/12 season before he was signed by former AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves.
AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told afcb.co.uk...
"I think he has grown to the level. There are question marks when you gain promotion over how certain individuals will perform and no one can ever predict that,"
"But he is someone who has really made the most of the opportunity and hopefully he can continue to do that.'
"I`m pleased to have it done because we`ve been trying to get it sorted for a while, so I`m looking forward to getting on with the football again, I still had two years left on my contract but the club wanted to extend it and I was more than happy to do that.
"It`s a good place to be at the moment and the club is on the rise, so I see it as a positive thing to extend my stay here.
"This is one of the first times in my career that I`ve felt settled and that`s why I didn`t really have to think too long about signing a new contract.
It's easy to join AFCB Vital
