The futures of Junior Stanislas and Adam Smith are very much up in the air at present, with both players having seen their previous contracts with Bournemouth expire last week.
Now the experienced duo are currently out of contract and assessing their options, with the Cherries said to be speaking to the winger and right back respectively.
Newly installed head coach Scott Parker has even gone as far to say to the Bournemouth Echo that he feels both players can be options for the club moving forwards into next season.
The club are actively negotiating with the experienced pair and if worse comes to worst and they can’t agree a new deal, Parker has made it clear that they have other targets lined up that they can pursue instead.
The higher or lower Bournemouth transfer fee quiz – can you get 20/20?
Smith was more of a regular in the side during the campaign just gone as the Cherries ultimately missed out on promotion back to the Premier League, with the former Tottenham Hotspur man playing the best part of 46 games across all competitions.
Whilst Stanislas was also heavily involved under the club’s then head coach Jonathan Woodgate as he racked up an impressive 11 goals and four assists in 36 games.
Both players boast a total of around 450 combined appearances for the Cherries overall and would still have a lot to offer if Parker feels that they are worth keeping at the Vitality Stadium.
The former Fulham boss certainly has some difficult decisions to make over the next few weeks as his ear on the South Coast really starts to come into effect.
