Lewis Grabban

Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban has signed a new contract and committed his future to the Cherries.

The 26-year-old held talks with Championship rivals Brighton & Hove Albion this week over a potential move to the Amex Stadium.

Instead, the former Crystal Palace trainee has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with Bournemouth.

Grabban joined Bournemouth from Rotherham in summer 2012 and has scored 10 goals in 25 appearances this season.

This is the second time this season that the club have given Grabban a new contract, after he initially extended his deal through to 2016 in November.
