Veteran goalkeeper Artur Boruc has signed a new one-year contract with Bournemouth, but Welshman Marc Pugh will leave the club upon the end of his contract.

The 39-year-old former Poland international made 12 Premier League appearances for Eddie Howe’s side last season, keeping four clean sheets.

Ex-Celtic and Fiorentina keeper Boruc joined the Cherries, initially on loan, from south-coast rivals Southampton in 2014.

He has made 129 appearances for the club in all competitions.

As Boruc enters the final few years of his contract, the keeper will be looking to challenge Bosnian Asmir Begovic for the number one jersey for the Cherries.

Bournemouth also announced that out-of-contract winger Marc Pugh will leave the Vitality Stadium.

Winger Pugh, who finished last season on loan at Sky Bet Championship side Hull, scored 56 times in 312 appearances during a nine-year stint in Dorset.

Pugh became a fans’ favourite at Bournemouth after playing a key role in their promotion from the Championship.

However, appearances in the Premier League in recent years have been few and far between leaving Pugh with no choice but to leave on loan and he will now head into the summer looking for a new club.
