Cape Town - Joshua King has become the latest player to commit his future to Bournemouth after the club confirmed a new four-year deal for the striker.
King established himself as a key performer for Eddie Howe's side last season as they finished ninth in the Premier League, with 16 goals in 36 top-flight appearances.
The Norway international, who joined the Cherries in 2015 after three years at Blackburn, has featured in all three league games this term but is yet to get off the mark.
King revealed he was happy to sign on at the Vitality Stadium after being linked with a move away from the south coast during the current transfer window.
"There was a lot of talk in the summer but I always made it clear that I wanted to stay here," the 25-year-old told the club's official website.
"Bournemouth is a great club that is always looking to improve. The manager has been brilliant with me and we have a fantastic squad. The future here is bright and I'm really happy that I'll be a part of that."
Cherries chief executive Neill Blake added: "I am delighted that Joshua has committed his long-term future to the club.
"During the last year he has become a key player here, both with his goals and performances, and was instrumental in the team finishing ninth in the Premier League in 2016/17.
"Joshua is the fifth player we have tied down to a new deal this summer and, combined with our four new signings, we can all be excited about the direction the club is heading in."
