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."

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
