England international Lewis Cook has signed a new four-year contract with Bournemouth.

The 21-year-old midfielder – who is on England’s standby list for the World Cup in Russia – joined the Cherries in 2016 from Leeds and has made 41 appearances for the club.

Cook said: “This new contract is a really proud moment for me and the icing on the cake for the year we’ve had and all the hard work that’s gone on behind the scenes at the club.

“It came as a nice surprise. I was just concentrating on my football and playing games, but when it was spoken about I couldn’t wait to get it signed.

“I’m really enjoying my football here and I’m looking forward to the future with Bournemouth.”
