The 22-year-old's current contract is set to expire and has had a mixed experience since former boss Eddie Howe plucked him from the non-league ranks.

"I am normally nervous before games but that hasn't been the case in the past couple. I have just gone into them with a nothing to lose and everything to gain attitude," he told the Bournemouth Echo.

"I want to stay. I have been here for two years and have really enjoyed it. There is not a lot I can do now because the season is over. I just have to hope I have done enough.

"It has been an up-and-down season to say the least. But I was happy with my last two performances.

"In the games I played towards the end of the season, I could put my hand on my heart and say I was pleased with how I played."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
