Cape Town - Ivory Coast international Max Gradel has committed his long-term future to Bournemouth by signing a new four-year deal.

The new contract will keep the winger at the Vitality Stadium until 2020.

Gradel joined the Cherries from St Etienne in August 2015 for a fee in the region of £7m, but he made only 14 appearances in the Premier League after suffering a serious knee injury.

"I'm very very pleased to sign," he told Cherries Player HD.

"I've seen the club in different ways, as I was here before. It's amazing to see how it has changed and the progression that has been made, it's going in the right direction. It's exciting and of course I want to be part of that. 

"The people here have always been good to me and the manager (Eddie Howe) has been fantastic - I really feel at home here.

"I think it's very important for a player to have a good relationship with the coach, I have a good relationship with the manager here.

"He's supported me through some tough times and on the pitch, he teaches me different ways to play and that is also very important.

"He's a coach who always wants to improve his players and that's a great thing for a player."
